Twitter Acquires SMS Company, Cloudhopper [blog.twitter.com]
Over the last eight months we have been working with a startup called Cloudhopper to become one of the highest volume SMS programs in the world—Twitter processes close to a billion SMS tweets per month and that number is growing around the world from Indonesia to Australia, the UK, the US, and beyond.

To help us further grow and scale our SMS service, we are happy to announce the acquisition of Cloudhopper, a messaging infrastructure company that enables Twitter to connect directly to mobile carrier networks in countries all over the planet.

Maybe the twitter business model is beginning to become clearer...

What isn't clear is how many of the 1 billion SMS messages are spam generated and never seen by human eyes, at least willingly. You know... apps doing their thing when nobody is paying attention to them.

Does that mean SMS is the future?
