Just for grins, I tried IM’ing Twitter again from my US Cellular phone. I fully expected the “service not supported” error message I’d received in the past. Instead, the message went through and a moment later I received confirmation that SMS had been activated on my account.

Nice! That officially puts Twitter ahead of Jaiku and Pownce for me, for the time being. With that active, it may be worth coping with some of my other gripes, because I still believe real-time SMS is the only really useful application for the service.

Now to figure out what’s interesting enough to be worth posting…
