Twitter Buys a Text Messaging Company - Bits Blog - NYTimes.com

More Twitter expansion

Cloudhopper has already been working with Twitter to connect its service directly with mobile carriers around the world, in part so that users do not have to pay extra to send or receive text message Tweets. Twitter has long had problems with this, and in the past has had to disable text messaging in certain countries because of high fees.

Twitter now processes more than a billion SMS Tweets a month, according to Kevin Thau, who manages mobile products and partnerships at Twitter.
