Twitter coming to phones without Internet

 
 
Twitter will soon be available to some international mobile users without Internet access, according to Reuters. 

Twitter Inc is tying up with a Singapore-based startup to make its 140-character messaging service available to users in emerging markets who have entry-level mobile phones which cannot access the Internet.
 
U2opia Mobile will launch a new service in March 2014. It uses a telecom protocol called Unstructured Supplementary Data (USSD) that allows mobile phone users without Internet access to dial a number to receive updates instead of connecting to the Internet. The company already works with Facebook to deliver updates from that social network to feature phones and Reuters points out it is also used for Google Talk.

U2opia, which is present in 30 countries in seven international languages, will localize the Twitter feed according to the location of the user.
