For instance, let's assume Twitter's short code number is 17465. New users can send "JOIN" to this number, and Twitter will send back a message to the user, asking him or her to set up an account name. Then the user sends the account name to Twitter's short code number. If that name is valid, Twitter will send back a message to set up the password. Just like this, a new user account is set.tL6SMS Service, A2P SMS, Global SMS, BUKA Cloud Communication
