Soon You’ll Be Recieving Twitter @Replies Direct to Your Phone- Rumor?


Twitter Rumors

There aren’t many things that get past us here at Agent Genius, although most of it is unworthy of our time and energy in actually drafting anything around it, but this time, it’s different, and we were able to actually verify it.

Many have wanted and waited for a way to finally receive @ messages by phone from Twitter as currently Twitter only allows for direct messages (or dm) , and we can confirm that the product is actually in beta now.  What we cannot confirm is the release date.

We won’t trump the company or persons behind the development, as not to rush products to market that shouldn’t be at market but what we can reveal is that it isn’t Twitter developing the ability.

Have a rumor for us to verify within or outside of the real estate space?  Simply click the ‘Submit Tip’ button up top and let us know- we promise, you’ll remain anonymous.

    As interesting as the scoop is, I could never turn that feature on – it would drive me nuts. I get too much mail as it is. Now if Twitter would just let me use my email with their service or tell me why it bounces, I could at least be slightly happier.
