An only 50% joking idea: an SMS gateway to post twts/yarns
@firstname.lastname@example.org I been thinking about that too at some point. I believe that was the original reason form the 140 character limit on twitter.
@email@example.com yes, you used to be able to tweet through SMS. I actually did that a few times, long ago! It can be handy at times
@firstname.lastname@example.org what is it ? 2006 😛
@email@example.com I received and sent tweets by SMS, I guess in 2008 or so…
Today, here, SMS are practically dead, only used for 2FA and marketing (both use cases wrong IMO)
Even when they are free, no one uses them, I think due to the lack of images and attachments in general.
I vaguely recall a project of Internet of Things sending control commands by SMS but I think they moved to AM radio frequency being cheaper and more reliable. Interesting question of how SMS are used nowadays…
@eaplmx hmm, that’s interesting. Many cell phone plans here include unlimited SMS free and a fair number of people use them still, at least among Old People like me.
@eaplmx hahaha 😆
@firstname.lastname@example.org I write SMS when people ignore me on other apps, usually I get their attention when they receive a message from an unusual source (SMS) 😏
