I have received reports that there have been some problems with SMS updates to iPhones. For the past few days some updates have been coming through blank. Oddly these seem only to be updates sent via Twitter, Tweetdeck and Facebook – updates sent directly from the website seem fine.
A looking at online support forums shows that the issue has been reported to Twitter and Apple by various other parties and I am monitoring the situation to see if/how it can be sorted. I don’t intend to stop updating our Twitter feed as other types of mobile phone seem to be unaffected, and I know that many people who don’t subscribe to SMS updates do follow us on Twitter.
Apologies if you are affected by this but the solution is in the hands of Twitter and Apple and whilst we wait for them to sort it out I thank you for your patience.
