Thuraya launches Twitter via SMS service

Thuraya users will be able to operate their Twitter accounts via SMS from 15th December 2011. This means that users will be able to update their Twitter accounts from anywhere within the Thuraya coverage area. To use this service, customers will need to use the dedicated SMS code of 1888. This code will allow you to link your Thuraya phone to your Twitter account. Thuraya voice customers will receive Tweets free-of-charge in the form of an incoming SMS. Outgoing Tweets will be sent and charged as a normal text message. Twitter allows you to update your friends, family and followers in realtime in a short SMS style fashion. It is especially useful for remote users to keep up-to-date with their company and social circles. Thuraya is the first satellite network operator to bring the service to its handsets.
