We know there’s lots of folks in India who like Twitter. We’ve already noticed some cricket action and at least one Bollywood movie. We’d like to see more people in India take advantage of Twitter. So, if you have friends or family that live in India (or if you live in India yourself), you can help us spread the word about our India shortcode: 5566511. Using this shortcode means not having to pay international SMS charges when using Twitter from India.
Some Things To Note
SMS messages are limited to 250 per week for folks outside the US. If you come close to the upper limit in a week, we’ll let you know in advance. We’re also aware of a few wrinkles that have yet to be smoothed out surrounding verification on certain operators. Please let us know how the India shortcode works for you.
