Want to get updates from Twitter but don’t want to create a Twitter account? No problem! Use Twitter's free fast follow service to receive Twitter updates by text without without having to sign up for Twitter or add a Twitter app to your phone.
To get started:
- Send Follow [username] to your Twitter shortcode and you will start receiving Tweets from that user on your device.
- Example: sending follow Barbershopnews to 40404 on a US-based AT&T phone would mean you would start getting SMS updates whenever @Barbershopnews posts a Tweet.
