Today we have launched Twitter SMS in Australia with our partner Telstra. As always, it is free to receive notifications and standard text messaging rates apply to sending. It’s the same pricing as sending and receiving text messages from friends. Give it a try by sending “START” to 0198089488. Once you have your phone associated with your Twitter account try following @Telstra by sending “FOLLOW Telstra” to 0198089488. Or follow one of these popular accounts via SMS by sending “FOLLOW” and the username.
