I’ll admit it, I’m addicted to Twitter. The only thing that I have found that I don’t like about Twitter is the inability to receive updates, either via email or SMS, for all of your @replies; I fix things I don’t like.
I’ve used a combination of Yahoo pipes and a free service, notify.me, to receive all of my @replies via SMS. A few notes about my method:
- You can configure your updates to come as any combination of the following: SMS, email or IM. This tutorial focuses on SMS.
- Since we're using Yahoo pipes to create the RSS feed of all the @replies there is a bit of lag between the actual Twitter @ reply and the notification.
- The Yahoo pipe that we are using catches all @replies, not just ones that start with @reply ie: "great link from @jennykortina"

You now will get all of your Twitter @ replies as SMS messages to your phone. Like I said earlier, there is a slight delay between the time the actual @ reply message is posted and when you get the SMS, but it’s worth the wait!
