Twitter disables its original SMS service in most countries

Generally, you can no longer utilize Twitter as it was initially worked to be utilized: over instant message. 

A week ago, Twitter killed the capacity to get SMS messages containing the content of new tweets. The component was crippled in everything except "a couple of nations" that depend on the element. 

This won't be an enormous arrangement for the vasty lion's share of Twitter clients who get to the administration by means of the application or site. However, there are as of now protests from certain individuals who despite everything utilized SMS to understand tweets. One business, DansDeals, said it depended on the element to make perusers aware of deals. 

The change to a great extent denotes the finish of a time for Twitter: when the administration propelled, it was worked around SMS. Its unique 140-character limit was custom-made to instant message sizes, and you were intended to send and get new tweets altogether over SMS. That hasn't been the essential method to utilize Twitter for quite a while, however, as more individuals purchased cell phones and could utilize the portable application.

Programmers accessed the telephone number of Twitter Chief Jack Dorsey, so, all in all, they had the option to utilize the SMS highlight to tweet from his record. Twitter expeditiously impaired sending tweets by means of SMS for everything except "a couple of areas." 

This most recent update is likewise said to be tied in with helping "individuals protect their records," as indicated by a Twitter representative. It's not so much clear what the hazard is when accepting tweets, as opposed to sending them, yet Twitter has been keen on eliminating this element for quite a while.

"We killed the rest of our Twitter by means of SMS highlight, with the exception of a couple of nations that depend on it to utilize Twitter," the Twitter representative said. Twitter will in any case send "significant SMS messages" for making sure about records, similar to confirmation codes.
