                       your tweets into the iPhone‘s Twitter app.
                Here’s a quick workaround for that:

                1. In your Mac or PC browser version of Twitter, you
                must first enable Twitter text messaging (if you’ve
                already done this, you can skip to step 5). Do this by
                clicking on the drop-down list on the top right (next
                to your twitter handle) and selecting Settings. Keep
                in mind that if you don’t have unlimited texting, this
                could get expensive.                                        4. You’ll see this screen next, telling you it’s waiting

                                                                            move on to the next step.




                2. Next, click the Mobile tab, third one from the left.




                3. Enter your iPhone 4S mobile number with area
