SMS Messages from Twitter?

I seem to be getting univited SMS messages from some of my Twitter contacts.  How is this possible?  More importantly, how do I switch this off?

 

Thanks,

Herb...

use a desktop browser, and go to twitter. Log in and edit your profile, and remove your phone number.

Thank you !  That did the trick as I didn't realize this was a setup item in the Twitter website.

Re: SMS Messages from Twitter?

a bit of history...

when twitter started, it only gained popularity in the US thanks to this feature. People could get twitter notifications by SMS. At that time people were subscribing more for alert services (floods, hurricanes, and transportation workers strikes) than for celebrities.

This feature was and is limited to selected countries.
