Q: What cool features do you have planned?

MMS Integration - MMS stands for Multimedia Messaging Service and will allow us send the entire tweet as a screenshot.

Follow More than 15 - At this time we limit the amount of handles you may follow to 15. This helps us limit the amount of outbound text messages. We understand that many of our users wish to follow more handles and we plan to make this happen.

Q: I registered an account and am not receiving tweets. What's up?

You have one of two issues.

  1. You have not yet responded to the initial confirmation text message. SMSTweets is an opt-in only service and you must give us permission to send you more text messages. Reply to the initial text with "YES" (without the quotes) if you would like to opt-in.

  2. You have not yet followed any Twitter handles. Adding handles is easy. Reply to any text message from SMSTweets with the handle you wish to follow. For example, if you wish to follow Steve Martin, reply with "@SteveMartinToGo" (without the quotes).

Q: I'm receiving way too many text messages. How do I stop it?

You may either:

  • Stop following specific Twitter handles by simply responding with the Twitter handle you wish to unfollow.


  • Tell us to stop sending you text messages altogether. Reply to any text message from SMSTweets with "CANCEL" (without the quotes).

Q: The text messages I am receiving are cut off. Why is this?

Text messages have a maximum length of 160 characters and tweets are limited to 280 characters. Because of this, we shorten each text message when necessary. All text messages include a link to the actual tweet at the end of the text.

Q: Is there a limit to the number of Twitter handles I can follow?

Yes, you may follow up to 15 handles.

Q: I have questions and/or feedback. Who can I contact?
