Emailtwitter - has it died? Thursday, August 07, 2008
I readily admit to not having fallen in love with Twitter, which probably puts me in a minority amongst "webbies". Whilst I readily acknowledge there are many excellent uses for the service, personally I found Twitter too "noisy". Hence I've used it relatively little for months.
Preferring email to SMS, I did make use of an email service called emailtwitter for a while that allowed you to post tweets and receive them via email. However, the service seems to no longer be active [home page no longer active] and I've yet to find a replacement. If you've any suggestions on what to use instead, I'd be pleased to hear them.

Have you tried Twittermail? (http://www.twittermail.com/)
I have not used it myself but had it mentioned to me in passing. Might be worth a try..

Riaz, I have used Twittermail to post to Twitter but have not been very successful retrieving tweets from those I am following. Appreciate the suggestion though.
