I was reminded the other day that you actually used to be able to use Twitter through text messages.

Like, there was this whole system through which you could send tweets using special codes via SMS. It’s hard to remember now why that would have been, but it probably has something to do with the fact that back when Twitter launched, having a stable and ubiquitous mobile app wasn’t such an easy thing to achieve.

In any case, that functionality is gone now, but the spirit of it lives on. That spirit that says no matter where we are, no matter what we’re doing, we need to be able to tweet, and to enjoy the tweets of others, otherwise we might miss out of gems like these.
