Twitter shuts down SMS-based service for most countries

Apr 28, 2020 17:32 IST

Twitter has announced that it is shutting down the “Twitter via SMS” service that allowed users to receive tweet notifications via SMS. The micro-blogging platform said in a statement that the service had a lot of vulnerabilities and it’s doing so to protect users from potential security threats. Twitter has turned it off for most parts of the world, but declined to specify which countries will still support the feature. Twitter via SMS was helpful for people who didn’t own a smartphone or lacked steady access to the internet.
