Clearly I'm not very knowledgeable on this subject, but when I used twitter about five years ago, I didn't have a phone with internet access, I just used text messaging to update my status. What advantage does this have as opposed to something that has been being done for years? I guess something to do with how networks are a little different in other countries. Why is it of interest?

You were probably sending it through some EDGE(or something similar) proxy setup by your carrier. I'm guess this article is referring to something like dialup through the cell infrastructure.
