Another #twitterfail? – Twitter turns on Mobile Notifications for Users

So today I was going on about my business when I got like 10 sms messages in a row from Twitter. For no absolutely reason at all either. Then I was like…what the heck is going on? So I looked at who I was getting the text messages from and realized, these seem like people that I would have notifications on for.

But, wait a second, I haven’t turned on mobile notifications in a LONG time. I guess Twitter is at it again!

So, I logged into my mobile settings and saw this:

So, I quickly updated my settings so my phone would stop buzzing away like crazy. And, of course, like a good Social Media person (or something like that…) I did a quick twitter search to see that it wasn’t just me, oh no, it was everyone as it seems!

So, whatever happened to @biz saying that he was going to communicate things a little bit better. Expect to see a post from him on the Twitter Blog. But, I have to agree with one of the tweets sent out, you’d think by now twitter would have their act together with regard to SMS.

Keep the conversation going and follow me on twitter: @tonyadam

    I should just take my phone number out of their system. There’s no point in it any more.
