Unsustainable billing arrangements for Twitter


Footing the bill for long-distance SMS

Sooner or later, it was bound to happen. Twitter stops SMS notifications for many users.
It is funny watching all those people from Web/internet backgrounds now in shock and awe. LOL :)
Like it was sustainable practice. Obviously, another prove that the US west coast miscalculated mobile ( telecom matters ).

We should be all reminded how ICQ messenger in the early days of Web ( I was using this feature around year 2000. ) was shutting down SMS feature as well ( for most countries, it is available only in few countries ).

Now when's blood on the street, I wanna buy a stake in Twitter and make another investment round BCDEFG ;))


UPDATE:
Opposite to Twitter, Brightkite thinks they are just ready to add international text messaging as an option ( hahaha )
