Smart wants to suspend Twit2948 for all their users only. How smart is that?

For those who are using SMART, register now to TWIT2948 because we will be suspending registration for Smart only soon.

This is due to the fact they (Smart) have requested it, maybe they want to make their own? Well for our sake, they do better make it quick!

So please register now or be left behind! Those who have registered already, they will still be able to use TWIT2948 (i hope). I will try to keep the registration for Smart open for as long as possible (until I get the official notice).

Registration for Globe and Sun users will be kept open.

Alternatively you can sign the petition here:

Please check out also PinoyTwitters community page to show your support.

Happy twitting!


I realized that I gave something for free but caused me more trouble than appreciation. Is this how Philippine businesses going to end up eventually?

And for those asking: "If you're really doing it for free will you do it for us? "

My answer: Of course! I already got out of the mobile industry because I was tired dancing to the tunes of the Telcos. If you're willing to take the heat then show me your platform is easy to build stuff on (can I build stuff on it under 200 lines of code?) and whenever I have free time I will build something on it! For free!

---- UPDATE ----

Registration for new Twit users using Smart Telecoms is now suspended indefinitely, unregistered users will receive an "Invalid Keyword" reply. Smart users, don't send complaints here/to me. Send it to the online petition form or to your provider since its their fault.

Featured on PinoyTwitters!

I'm featured on PinoyTwitters of the Week: Week 1 - "Faces"!

For those who doesn't know about, it is a community site for all Filipino users of Twitter and TWIT2948 is fully appreciated too! So if you're looking for TwitBuddies then visit the site, share your life-streams!


Are you a Jaiku user?
Got envy when I released Twit2948 for Twitter?

I'm sharing today Jai2948 to the public which is an SMS service I'm using to update my Jaiku life-stream. This of course is developed again using the TxtDomain API under OrgText service of 2948.

Just send JAI to 2948 to receive the instructions on how to register, it is available for Globe, Smart and Sun users. Remember, you must first be a Jaiku user before you can use this service; standard VAS rates applies.

Finally before "Mr Squealer" tries to claim that I'm pocketing money making these service let me clarify. I'm not paid to do this, I don't get any revenue shares or anything else. I do this because It makes posting to Jaiku convenient for people on the road like me and I'm sharing it for the better good of all Jaiku users.

Before I end my post, for those who are not yet a Jaiku user you can post a comment here so I can send you an invitation.

PS: Since Jaiku has been acquired by Google so expect more integration of Jai2948 to the OpenSocial API and Google Services later on!
