It’s been a year since twitter had stopped supporting SMS alerts of tweets in many countries including Pakistan. It was like a turning point for huge twitter user base in Pakistan. As of course there are people who use twitter only because it supports mobile alerts. So now the wait for the Pakistanis is over. If you live in Pakistan and are a twitter user, and you want to keep alerted even on the move, a free solution is there for you.
Mobi2weet.com is the state of the art new Pakistani service that offers mobile/SMS support to Pakistani twitter users. One such service is already available in beta phase by 2’s Complement’s iSMS.pk – bBut Mobi2weet is different in a sense that Twitter users can not only update their statuses through phone, but they can receive all the status alerts of their friends through SMS.
Signing Up is easy
