How to receive quotes by Sri Chinmoy on your mobile phone
- Hi Everybody,
There is a new Twitter account called SriChinmoyQuote viewable at
http://twitter.com/srichinmoyquote. Twitter is a fun way to do
mini-blogging, IM or text messaging on your phone or website. A
message is limited to 140 characters. To follow someone on your phone
it is not required to have a Twitter account of your own but it is
easy to set one up. If you text to the following numbers, Twitter will
walk you through how to receive these posts as text messages.
What are the Twitter phone numbers?
They currently have three short codes and one long code for those who
* In the US, use 40404.
* In Canada, use 21212.
* In India, use 5566511.
* Anywhere else, use +44 7624 801423
Text the message follow + username (username is srichinmoyquote).
After that you will receive quotes of Sri Chinmoy's writings as a text
message on your phone. Standard rates for texts on your phone account
The other application of Twitter is that it can be a widget/badge on a
website and the widget will display the posts as they occur. I put it
on my blog at http://sharani.org so you can see it there. Just scroll
down and you will see it in one of the sidebars displaying some of the
recent posts. If you like this widget, it's free for the using on your
favorite website where you would like quotes from Guru's writings
included in your sidebar.
I tested it out on my mobile phone and have received a twitter post
from SriChinmoyQuote as well as one from John in New Zealand - the
only other person in the centre besides myself currently using
Twitter. His account is http://twitter.com/johnji and mine is
All a twitter,
p.s. Nallini will like this I think :-)
