I need to be able to update people in Afghanistan with SMS messages to their cell phones. I thought the best way to do this was to get them all to sign-up for twitter and then subscribe to my tweets and make it so those tweets go to their cell phones.

Do you think this plan makes sense?

This wouldn't be possible as Afghanistan is not in the Country list on Twitter. You need to register all of these details in order to receive Tweets. alt text

I think my idea is possible. I found this service called Tweet SMS. For about 10 cents an SMS you can send and get Tweets from a cell phone not hooked to the web. This service takes advantage of the Tweeter API. If anyone has used this service, I would appreciate your review. Cheers. –  indiehacker Oct 9 '10 at 16:37
