Teach Siri how to tweet


Even though Twitter is deeply integrated into iOS 5, you are not able to use Siri to speak your tweets. Here’s a little workaround for that:

First, open twitter.com on you PC or Mac. We first have to enable Twitter text messaging. To do so, click on your name on the top right corner and select “Settings”.

Select the mobile tab and enter your iPhone 4S mobile number with area code and click start. Twitter now sends you a text message to verify your phone number.

Now go to the Messages app on you iPhone and send “go” to “40404”. If you’re not in the United States, you can find your twitter shortcode here.

In your Contacts app, make a new contact. First name “Twitter”, phone number “40404” (or your local shortcode).

Thats it! You now can open Siri and tweet by saying “Text Twitter …”. If you enable message notifications in the mobile settings on your PC or Mac, Siri can also read your tweets.

You can also use commands to follow users or retweet. This might now work out well because the usernames may be hard to understand for siri. But remember, you can always correct Siri with your keyboard if it didn’t understand you correctly.

  • FOLLOW username - Start following a user
  • UNFOLLOW username - Stop following a user
  • ON/OFF Turn all Tweet notifications on or off
  • ON/OFF username - Set Tweet notifications for a user on or off (you’ll still be following them even if you set it to off)
  • GET username - Shows you the latest tweet from any user
  • RETWEET username - Retweet a user’s latest tweet
  • FAVORITE username - Favorite a user’s latest tweet
  • DM username your – message - Send a direct message to a user
