just like google as the number GOOGL (46645) i would like to also set up a server like this that will have the ability to receive text messages.
how do i do this>??>
While Twilio doesn't yet support shortcodes, you can be up and running accepting text messages using simple POST requests sent to your server very quickly. There are other similar services out there as well so look around and use the one you like the most.
[Full disclosure: I work for Twilio]
