Microblogging giant Twitter announced the acquisition of a startup called Cloudhopper that specializes in connecting SMS carrier systems. Cloudhopper had already been partnering with Twitter for the previous 8 months.

The acquisition is part of an attempt by Twitter to ease the costs of updating by text message, a service that is extremely expensive in many countries.
