Tweets find right path to users

Popular social network provider Twitter continues to make inroads in the mobile space, winning support from the GSMA and mobile services firm Neustar, in a deal that will give twitter subscribers a level of redundancy in their service.

The GSMA’s PathFinder service, a number translation service that launched in 2009, will be used to ensure subscribers can reliably access their twitter stream in real time, even when they change mobile operators.

Twitter said that connecting subscribers seamlessly and reliably to their individual twitter account becomes more complex as users switch operators and geographic regions. PathFinder, which is managed by Neustar, acts as a global registry of IP addresses and phone numbers, giving service providers the means to reach all their users irrespective of their choice of network or technology.
