Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service
that enables its users to send and read messages known as
tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters
displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to the
author's subscribers who are known as followers. Twitter is
ranked as one of the 50 most popular websites worldwide. Wikipedia
What is a short code?
Short codes are numbers made specifically for SMS (text) messages.
Twitter uses various short codes to send and receive your
updates. Sending a text message to a short code is just like
sending a text message to a phone number. Short codes are
made specifically for text messaging, so you can't send an
email to a short code, or call a short code. Charges for using
our short codes are the same as standard text messaging rates
to full-length phone numbers. Long codes are also text only,
but they're the length of a standard phone number instead
of being shortened.
What is Twitter's short code?
We currently support 2-way (sending and receiving) Twitter
SMS via short codes US: 40404
Twitter is very easy! If you can send an email, you can "tweet".
Basically, what twitter has done is combine the online chatroom
in real time to your cell phone or PDA using SMS/text messaging.
If you are ready for this modern form of social networking
and like technology, you are going to love twitter. Plus,
it is a great “TOOL” for helping you stay sober.

Getting to know Twitter:
What is it?
Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers
to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of
quick, frequent messages. People write short updates, often
called "tweets" of 140 characters or fewer. These
messages are posted to your profile or your blog, sent to
your followers, and are searchable on Twitter search.
Do I need anything special to use it?
All you need to use Twitter is an internet connection or a
mobile phone. Join us here! Once you're in, type your first
update into the web box. To get an idea of what other people
are saying or doing on Twitter, check out Twitter search to
see what Twitter's all about. You can search by keyword or
just check out the trending topics to what's hot on Twitter
How do I find my friends?
When you create an account, you can search for people by name
or user name, import friends from other networks, or invite
friends via email. If you don't want to do that, follow some
of the people we've suggested. Once you've found your friends,
follow them to start getting their updates.
What does it mean to follow someone on Twitter?
Following someone simply means receiving their Twitter updates.
When you follow someone, every time they post a new message,
it will appear in your Twitter home page. New messages are
added to your home page as people post them, so you always
get the updates in real time. When you log in, you can see
what the latest updates are. Twitter offers other ways to
follow people too: you can get updates from certain people
on your phone!
Do I have to use an iPhone to use Twitter with my phone?
No! Any phone that can send and receive text messages to a
short code can use Twitter. iPhones and other phones with
extensive mobile web features can be also be used but Twitter
works with all phones!

to the place
the command comes from; you'll still collect a person's updates
on the web.
using follow/leave username from your phone is the same as
following someone from a phone for the first time will also
cause you to
follow them on the web
there is no way to stop following a person on the web without
profile and removing them. The off, leave, stop, and quit
commands will only
disable updates for the device(s) from which they were sent.
you don't have to use ON/OFF username from the phone, you
can also set
individual notifcations from a person's profile page, or check
page and manage all phone notification settings there.
I haven’t setup my phone, but I thought I could still
use the internet?
Yes, u can. I am not on the computer often, though (due to
our common problem). I will be sending tweets via my phone
and can receive yours as well. If you set yours up to receive
text messages, then it will be a constant accountability tool,
rather than just when the individual is sitting at the computer.
Have u set up your cell phone on twitter? If not, you go to
settings and put your number under the "Device"
tab. Also, if you want to receive tweets from other users
on your phone, be sure to click the cell phone icon next to
their name individually, otherwise, you will only be able
to send status updates but not receive those of others.
