QUESTION FOR TWITTER: Is there a setting for receiving only @replies on my phone?

It would be nice to have a setting on Twitter to get only @replies sent as a text message to my phone. Getting tweets from all my friends would be crazy. But getting just the @replies would be really nice.

Twitter’s help page states the following:

Nope. But if we get enough feature requests, we may just add it for you. Send us one!

I would love for people to flood Twitter with requests to be able to get only @replies as text messages. Here’s what I recommend putting in the request box on Twitter’s request page at

You could actually set something like this up exporting the RSS feed on your Twitter account into something like Yahoo Pipes, taking that to generate a new RSS feed that just parses the @Replies, then import that into another account via Twitterfeed that is tied to updates on your phone. It’s a long workaround, but I’ve setup something similar.

If you download the Twittelator app, you can look at only your @replies…
