SMS follow – Twitter

Want to get updates from @Twitter but don’t want to create a Twitter account? No problem! Use SMS follow to receive Twitter updates without having to sign up or add your phone to a Twitter account.

Note: Message and data rates may apply.

To get started:

SMS follow allows you to get great content, directly from people you choose to follow, straight to your phone.

  • Send Follow [username] to your Twitter shortcode, and you will start receiving Tweets from that user on your device.
  • Example: sending follow Twitter to 40404 on a US-based AT&T phone would mean I’d start getting SMS updates whenever @Twitter posts a Tweet.

Some notes on SMS following:

  • As a SMS follow user, you will only be able to receive updates from accounts you follow.
  • SMS follow users have a limit to how many updates they can receive daily. If you have hit your limit, you will receive the message “You’ve reached your daily limit for Tweet notifications.” If you would like to receive more updates just reply with your full name and follow the instructions to create a full Twitter account.
  • As a SMS follow user, your phone number (or any other personal information) will not be included in the follower list of users you choose to follow.
  • If you have a Twitter account with a username and profile (not an SMS follow account), any SMS follow user who chooses to follow you will be reflected in your overall follower count.

To remove your phone and SMS follower list from Twitter:

  • You can send Follow [username] anytime and start receiving updates again!

Note: The accepted formula that Auxiliary Mode Inc. uses to calculate the CPM range is $0.45 USD - $25.00 USD.

The range fluctuates this much because many factors come into play when calculating a CPM. Quality of traffic, source country, niche type of video, price of specific ads, adblock, the actual click rate, watch time and etc.

Cost per thousand (CPM) is a marketing term used to denote the price of 1,000 advertisement impressions on one webpage. If a website publisher charges $2.00CPM, that means an advertiser must pay $2.00 for every 1,000 impressions of its ad. The "M" in CPM represents the Roman numeral for 1,000.
