Apparently, twitter will no longer update all it’s users via SMS messages, but they will try and start local deals with local operators. For Romania, they had a UK number, and I can bet it wasn’t cheap for them to send all those SMS’s. We will still be able to update via the UK mobile number, and they are suggesting a variety of mobile software for browser enabled phones in the official mail sent a couple of hours ago.

I’ve been saying for a while now that twitter is going downhill, and I was expecting this move but at the moment, I think reconsidering part of the problem, will allow them to cut some costs and invest that money in another part of their business.
So, Good morning Twitters, wherever you are, this is GOOD news! Follow me on twitter by clicking here.
