Photo Posting Via Text Message Announced by Twitter

A new service has been announced by Twitter that enables you to send a photo by text message. Twitter now allows you to attach a photo to an SMS message and then send that (as an MMS) to Twitter who then post it on your wall. The service is available on several carriers around the world (listed below).

Another feature also allows you to use SMS commands to get details from Twitter by text message. The new commands include the following:

“Suggest”: lets you get suggestions for accounts to follow
“Stats”: sends you your basic profile info, including your bio info, number of followers and the number of accounts you follow
“Help” or “Tips”: to get handy Twitter SMS tips

Finally, the Fast Follow service that has been available to those in the US has now rolled out internationally although it only works with carriers that the Twitter picture messages service works on which are:

AT&T, Verizon Wireless and Cellular South in the US; Vodafone, O2 and Orange in the UK; Vodafone Italy; Rogers Communications in Canada; VIVA Bahrain; and, TIM Brazil.

Expect more carriers to follow over the coming months as the above list doesn’t really count as a global roll-out just yet.
