My G/F is getting the same thing. She has DM's set to go via SMS, but
she also gets tweets as SMS on a daly basis, at some pretty unruly
hours. These are just normal tweets, by people she is following.
Some, if not most, are not following her back.
I do not have this problem, and follow much larger base of people than
she does. However, I also follow the same people she is following,
which are somehow able to get a normal tweet to go over SMS to her.
Is this a known issue, is there some way to make it stop? It is
important to get DM's via SMS, but it is also important to not get
woken up at 4AM from @someone_i_just_follow.

to check and see if the item had been retweeted, and the answer was
no. Furthermore, I only have my account (@nazgul) set to receive
text messages for about four users, and none of them retweeted these
messages. Possibly related, I have a friend who turned off *all*
phone notifications over a day ago, and is still getting random new
text messages from people she follows but didn't set to send her
I confirmed that these were not retweeted by anyone for whom I get
notifications (or in one case, by anyone at all).
Others I haven't had a chance to investigate, but which it seems
highly unlikely were retweeted by anyone who sends me notifications.
