Quite a few people are complaining about Twitter’s decision to stop updates via SMS in the UK because it was proving to be too costly. (Actually it is a decision that impacts everyone who is not in US, Canada or India.) Sarah Lacy says they should stop whining. Instead they should check out this new service, Zygotweet, that will allow you to buy credits (between 4-to-5 p per message), and get your tweets to your mobiles.

    Forget receiving updates, sending them via SMS has been non-existent in India too for the past several months – all you get is a reply SMS stating “This service is unavailable temporarily”. I wonder why no one’s making a noise about that.

    There are quite a few microblogging services in India, one of the popular ones is http://tagg.in

    Hi,

    We’ve recently launched twittex.com to fill this gap in the UK left by twitter. Unlike zygotweet, our service has been live since Wednesday, and costs just 5p per SMS too.

    Best regards,
    Stu
