I've talked with people from Egypt during their protests, Libya during their conflicts and Japan after their quake. It's been a sporadic, fun initial community (currently the site is taken over by people from Taiwan).
We're releasing a new feature each week based off user feedback. It's been interesting, as our plan has changed by the week. Started with an MVP, listened to the customer & building out. Hope to see you guys around lissn :)
Not sure what the real value is, but its fun for the moment.
my initial testers all got nailed with $30+ cell phone bill increases because Twilio only has american numbers. and canadians can't text american numbers for free anymore.
if anybody wants the code, it's built in django and I own www.texted.in with it (currently down since djangy is going away)
(Has any big company ever succeeded in making something "go viral"? All I can think of is that "I'm on a horse" series of ads on YouTube. Ironically, I can't remember what they were selling. Old Spice?)

I am fasting, but it's not going very well.
And, I have to admit - it's a winner.
It's like the Cracker Jacks of text messaging. Every text is a winner...
I'd feel more comfortable trying it if my SMSs weren't publicly displayed.
Although I did just upgrade my SMS plan to 1,000... Hmm.
