T witter, the world’s largest mobile social network service, has chosen Ericsson’s IPX solution for its global SMS traffic to support the service’s ability to send and receive brief “status” updates via text messaging to the growing number of mobile phones in Twitter’s network. Ericsson IPX will also support Twitter’s new tracking service, which allows users around the world to track any status updates that include key words or topics and enables users to find fellow Twitter users with similar interests. Twitter is used globally by friends, family and co-workers to communicate and stay connected. Celebrities, politicians, organizations and leading media companies are also using Twitter to communicate with their “followers”.

Ericsson IPX SMS aggregator

"Ericsson IPX is one of the world's largest SMS aggregators, and immediately provides Twitter with the ability to distribute messages to most mobile phones worldwide, which is extremely important for a social communication utility" said Jack Dorsey, CEO and Founder of Twitter. "We are encouraged by Ericsson's technical expertise and will now be able to utilize their extensive operator connections to create a phenomenal end-user experience. We therefore anticipate expanding our relationship even further with Ericsson in the future."
