How does texting from a cell to update one’s twitter account work?

19 Oct Posted by in Twitter | Comments

Question by oompaloompa: How does texting from a cell to update one’s twitter account work?
Since I don’t text often, I have the 250 txt per month plan with att. If I submit my cell # to Twitter, will I be able to txt a tweet to Twitter without getting any updates from other people. Can I just tweet but not have twitter txt me with updates the people I follow post? Will the txt still count as part of my plan or will it be a different charge? Hope my questions are clear.

Yes, you can text a tweet to Twitter without getting updates from those you are following. When you select to follow someone, make sure you select “Device Updates: Off”.
This should prevent you from receiving updates via text, but should allow you to send in your personal update via text.

And the text should be apart of your plan.
