Via Ben Barren, Twitter is no longer supporting SMS in Australia. They’ve since updated the original post to say:
“To clarify, we’re getting a new access number for Australia?¢‚Ç¨‚Äùas soon as we get the number, sms service will be back in action. We’re working on it right now and it’s a high priority.”
But 99 million dollar question: why cut the service off before putting in place the alternative?
For the record I don’t use Twitter on my mobile, when I was the damn thing never stopped beeping, but I know a lot of people who were using it on their phones, a lot of people who little doubt will be pretty pissed about this.
