How to Tweet From a Cell Phone


Twitter allows users to update friends, colleagues and fans about their daily lives. Because people are not always near a computer when they want to send an update--or tweet--Twitter provides several ways for users to tweet. Cell phone users with a web browser, or at least SMS text messaging capabilities, can tweet from anywhere with cell phone service.

  • Type your tweet into the text box. Tap "Send" to post your tweet.

Tweet via SMS

  • Send a text to your country's numerical twitter code with the word "START" as the message. In the United States, the twitter code is 40404.
