Help for 2 Twitter Acounts through 1 Cell Phone?

Lazy­web request: Does any­one have any ideas for how to run two Twit­ter accounts through one cell phone using just text mes­sages? I know I can do it through email or on the web on the phone, but I really want the instant, push noti­fi­ca­tion that SMS pro­vides. Help me, Lazyweb!

  1. Try some of the Twit­ter appli­ca­tions that are around (have a look on the Twit­ter site at some of these). I know for exam­ple that using Twit­Pics to post images sets up an indi­vid­ual email account for your images to be sent to (which then links to the Twit­ter account of your choice). I haven’t tried it yet as I only set it up yes­ter­day but in the­ory you should there­fore be able to use the same phone for numer­ous accounts as they are send­ing them to dif­fer­ent places and are not linked in to a phone number.

    Also try ping.fm although I haven’t exper­i­mented myself yet (on my to do list) so not sure how effec­tive it will be.

    Good luck!

  2. FYI

    I just came across this on the Twit­ter FAQ (http://help.twitter.com/forums/10711/entries/14014):

    Can I use the same phone num­ber on mul­ti­ple accounts?
    No. You can only use one phone num­ber for one account.

    There might be an app that can do this, but I haven’t come across any­thing like it yet.
