Paul Lilly

In a blog post on Friday, Twitter announced it had acquired Cloudhopper, a small SMS technology company and the second acquisition by the microblogging service so far this month.

"Over the last eight months we have been working with a startup called Cloudhopper to become one of the highest volume SMS programs in the world—Twitter processes close to a billion SMS tweets per month and that number is growing around the world from Indonesia to Australia, the UK, the US, and beyond," Twitter said .

Twitter will use the Seattle-based Cloudhopper acquisition to help connect directly to mobile carrier networks around the world. The microblogging service will also retain Cloudhopper's two-man development team, Twitter said.
