text2toot is a connector which allows posting to Mastodon via texting from your phone. It was written by ash on 2019-01-25 and the source code is available on GitHub. It requires Twilio, or some other similar phone system back-end, to send and receive the texts.

In theory, it can be used with any instance. We had it enabled on toot.cat for a few months, but there was very little interest and it became a technical liability.
