Singapore based U2opia Mobile together with Twitter are going beyond internet technology; the two have linked up to make 140-character messaging service available to users in emerging markets who have entry-level mobile phones which cannot access the internet.
The start-up has also done the same with Facebook and will  launchthe twitter service early next year.
All a user needs to do is dial a simple code and they will be connected  and will get a similar code to get a feed of the popular trending topics on Twitter, this is according to the CEO and co-founder Sumesh Menon.

U2opia Fonetwish seervice has managed to capture more than 11 million users, the love for this service is that the users get to access Google Talk, Facebook and soon Twitter with no data connection as it uses a telecom protocol named USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) which does not allow viewing of pictures, videos or other graphics.

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

The company, whose biggest markets are Africa and South America, partners with telecom carriers such as Telenor, Vodafone and Bharti Airtel Ltd. U2opia usually gets 30 to 40 percent of what users pay its telecom partners to access Fonetwish.
