@Dan any idea how many people were signed up for twitter sms notifications, and around how many posts/month there are?

There are a few options but here is slicktext's pricing:


Note that each message that is sent to each person counts as 1 text towards the monthly limit

Another option - this one integrates with wordpress and sends a text for each new post

Seems cost prohibitive.

I'd guess 20,000 SMS subscribers and 400 posts per month=8MM texts/month :(

Ifttt can do this without a script (rss) but it's limited per month as mentioned upthread. Zapier integrates with a number of texting services but I'm assuming at this volume they will all be very expensive (anyone want to check through them?)

Lots of reading but this would help me get the tweets from Twitter?

Any idea how much heroku and twillio would cost for 400 messages per month (ie: for one person to sign up to get notifications)?

Didn't look at the pricing, but what does this cost for one?
