How to Update Twitter via SMS/Text Philippines (@tweetitow’s Smart & Globe & Sun Numbers)


The way of registration below is phased out.

@tweetitow’s official website,, is now up. You can get more updated information from

@tweetitow is 3rd-party twitter application which lets you send and receive twitter updates via SMS or text here in Philippines. To get started, simply register your twitter username and password to any of the following numbers.

Smart number 0918-419-4904

Globe number 0927-338-9183

Sun Number 0923-986-0673

Format for registering: REG username password

Example: REG junpyoo flowers

Now to receive your mentions and direct messages or other users’ twitter updates, you need to go online after you register to @tweetitow. To start receiving updates, following are steps:

1. Send /on to any gateway numbers to go online. Once you are online, you can then receive your DMs and mentions.

2. To receive other users updates, send the command key in this format: /follow @user1 @user2 @user3

You can follow up to 8 users. To stop following a user, send: /leave @user

3. To go offline, send: /off

Please note that once you go online again, you need to follow again the users. If you want to maintain the people you follow but you want to stop receiving updates for the meantime, then use send: /hold

Following are complete list of command keys you can use regarding receiving updates:
/on -> To go online and start receiving updates — mentions and DMs.
-> To go offline. This means you will stop receiving updates.
/credits -> To check how many credits you still have.
/follow @user1 @user2 @user3 up to 8 users -> To start receiving updates from the user you follow. At the start, you will only receive mentions and DMs updates. If you want to receive tweet updates from a particular twitter user, you need to activate receiving updates from them. Example format, /follow @tweetitow.
/leave @user -> To stop receiving updates from a particular activated user.
/followstats -> To get a list of the twitter users you activated to receive updates from your phone.
/hold -> Hold sms updates. Similar to the command /off except that the settings and user you activate to receive updates from the last session are keep.
/resume -> To resume your session, and receive updates again from your phone.
-> To verify what twitter account you registered to T2.
/give @user -> To give another @tweetitow registered user some of your credits. Giving is sharing is loving.
/whatsnew -> To retrieve the 5 recent updates (from the last 24 hours) from any of the people you follow (including those you did not turn on to receive updates from your phone). To receive another 5 recent updates, simply send /whatsnew again — the 5 older tweet updates will be sent to your phone.
/whatsnew @user -> To retrieve the 5 recent updates of a user from the last 24 hours.

Send the command key to any of the gateway numbers for execution.

  4. Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must say this blog loads
    a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a
    honest price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!

    hi, tweetitow is super cool! but im thinking of changing my password. if i do register my phone again, what if hindi gumana? gusto ko sana malaman gagawin bago ako magpalit ng password :) thanks! :)

  30. camille

    hello! my tweetitow account is working perfectly until I changed my twitter password. Now, it won’t receive updates from my mobile phone anymore. Please help me on this. Thanks.

  31. Why is it that I don`t receive any mentions, DM`s, updates, etc? HELP OUT PUHLEAAASE.

  32. I never trust apps like these unless it’s really “affiliated” with Twitter.

    I can see that some people can’t receive their confirmation messages.

    I will only trust this app if I can see A LOT of positive comments.

    • Rose Buenconsejo

      hi. i hope u can try @tweetitow. all 3rd party twitter apps now are required by twitter to use OAuth for registration so you can be assured that there’s no monkey business behind it. please note that ‘confirmation messages’ are sent via mentions on twitter, not thru text.

  33. Anonymous

    i havent reciv any confirmation yet though im done registered

  34. can you tweet even if you’re unli?

  35. inodimayuga

    i followed the instruction on the tweetitow site and sent the registration textmessage but it’s not replying with a confirmation message i mean am i suppose to get a reply?

  36. inodimayuga

    uhm i’ve texted for the registration part but it’s not replying to me

  37. thanks! i love it!

  38. kim

    i already register but i still can’t follow people via sms. :|

  39. Faye

    I’m already done with the registration process. I texted /on to globe gateway# but didn’t receive any reply.

  41. melissa

    Hi, I already registered using the ouath reg but I still havent received a text confirmation. Should I register again?

    • Rose Buenconsejo

  42. cgm

    i already registered twice but still, didn’t work :(

  43. cgm

    i alyready registered twice but still, didn’t work :(

    • Rose Buenconsejo

  44. hannah

    I completed the first step of registration for globe but I didn’t get a reply text.. :/

    • Rose Buenconsejo

      did u register at after oauth reg, u need to register ur mobile by sending the codes provided to u. then after that u’l get a mention in ur twitter timeline from@tweetitow, now a text confirmation.

      after that, simply txt ur tweets to any of the gateway #s. thanks

  45. AHAHA23

    Is this safe? You are actually asking for the username and the password through text.

  46. jec

  69. Jayjay_0657

    hey. I’m using this application about 2 mos.? uhm. Can I just know if there is now the receiving of updates on Smart? ‘cuz im a Smart subscriber;)

  70. Wow thank you for your awesomeness! Can I register two cellphone numbers (different networks) for a single twitter account?

  71. Mae

    Hey i dont get the 30 credits thingy. What happens after that?

  72. sir salamat ng marami dito, astig!

  73. quick question: when beta testing is over, how much would an update cost me?

    • owrange

      please note *’sending’* updates will always be free on our side. it’s only for ‘receiving updates.’ we’re thinking something like around P10 for 50 updates ‘received.’ but nothing final yet. thanks for asking.


    hey tnx very much! its very useful and reliable. Can i ask a question….what are the credits you are referring to??? is it the cellphone load???

  75. ^_^x

    Yay! it works.. i also tried but it didn’t work.. Thanks a lot..

  76. selena

    Good job!

  77. wow. this one is fast. good job. So far it’s better that however, one question:

    this is free if I’m using unlimited right? (:

    • owrange

      yes. it will come out as free if u’re using those unlimited texting promos. tenchu for the compliment. =)

  78. If I change my Twitter password, will I still be able to send tweets using my number? :-)

  79. CM
