No more twitter SMS love

Twitter have announced that they will no longer be sending SMS updates through their European server, which means no SMS love for many including those of us in Australia.

Twitter without SMS updates is pretty much useless as the whole point of it is as a fast micro-messaging platform.

I'm currently trying to hack something through Yahoo Pipes and an RSS to Email gateway so that I can at least get updates on a few of the people I follow sent to email, but even if I get that to work its still doubtful if it will be a workable solution.

I only hope that they can negotiate a deal with a phone company in Australia to enable the sending of SMSs and doubly hope that that deal will mean those on Optus can get messages.
