There are a lot many ways by which you can send tweet messages via your phone using short messaging service. To list out some such service – Twitter officially has one such feature, except that, Vakow has such support for Indian users. But what if you want to receive updates by a specific twitter user via SMS?
Many a times, you might have missed out update by a specific person you always wanted to check. For example I always love to follow our Admin – Rahul’s tweets and have subscribed to his twitter tweets via SMS. There’s no big deal in this, its a simple trick and may help you in a great way. For this, you just need to know the RSS feed URL of the twitter user and then subscribe to get RSS feeds via SMS which we have discussed earlier.
For getting the feed URL of the twitter user, you just need to visit the Twitter page of the person you want to receive SMS alerts for (in my case its Rahul) wherein you can find a tab named ‘RSS’ on the footer of the twitter page.
Copy the link location by right clicking on the ‘RSS’ button and using the RSS feed URL that you generate in the above step just create RSS to SMS alerts which we have discussed in detail in our earlier post – Get SMS alerts for your favorite RSS Feeds.
