Unfollow, delete your number, add your number, refollow and enable notifications.

Thanks! Worked like a charm!

@Dan
I've been getting a lot of your tweets split into multiple texts, even though they are well under 160 characters.
I noticed that the ones getting split up all have apostrophes or quotation marks in them.
Most recently: and I did a little research (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7103990/sms-messages-non-ascii-characters-encoding and http://www.screen-magic.com/blog/sms-character-set-common-mistakes/).
It turns out that your tweets are using non-standard versions of these characters (′ vs ' and ″ vs "), presumably because you are copy-pasting from a website/email.
These characters require the sms to be encoded with UCS-2 that only allows for 70 characters/sms (see above research links for more info).
I think people would appreciate messages coming in one text, since multiple messages are often out of order, and sometimes parts get lost.
Simply retyping these (and maybe a few other) characters would solve this. There may be some clipboard sanitizers out there too.

Thanks for a great site!

My iPhone has no such problems.

It's possible that your phone is automatically merging them.
It's also possible that either Apple or your carrier is merging them.
I'm on Android with Boost Mobile.
I also tested it with google voice in my browser, and they get split up.

Have not received the past 2
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Curious to know if Twitters number is a universal number meaning can one text that number while in Israel or will he be charged as if your texting a u.s. number?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Israel doesn't seem to be listed, so it may not work at all.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Trying to follow DansDeals via SMS to 40404 like it says on the front of the site and getting prompt that "follow command is no longer supported".

What am I doing wrong?
