You can perform certain actions, like following a user or marking a friend's update as a favorite, by using the designated Twitter commands below.
When using these commands, do not append an @ symbol along with the command text. If you send these commands with an @ symbol, your commands will be read as a username and will not be executed as expected.
Example: If you want to turn on device notifications, send only "ON" and not "@ON."
Turning mobile Twitter updates OFF and ON:
* ON: turns ALL your authorized Twitter updates and notifications on.
* OFF: turns ALL phone notifications off.
* ON [username]: turns on notifications for a specific person on your phone. Example: ON alissa
* OFF [username]: turns off notifications for a specific person on your phone. Example: OFF blaine
* FOLLOW [username]: allows you to start following a specific user, as well as receive SMS notifications. Example: FOLLOW jerry, or F jerry, for short.
* UNFOLLOW [username]: allows you to stop following a specific user.
* LEAVE [username]: this command allows you to stop receiving SMS notifications for a specific user without having to unfollow them. When you log into twitter.com from the web you will still see this user's updates in your timeline. Example: LEAVE benfu, or L benfu, for short.
* STOP, QUIT, END, CANCEL, UNSUBSCRIBE, or ARRET: will deactivate your account if you are an SMS-only user. If you completed the sign-up flow on the web, sending any of these commands to your Twitter short code will simply remove your phone number from your Twitter account.
Fun stuff – friends, favorites, and stats:
