As Twitter approach the 1 billion SMS Tweet level per month, from its 105 million registered users; the company today announced the acquisition of Cloudhopper for an undisclosed sum.

Twitter have worked with Cloudhopper for nearly 9 months, using the service to grow faster and develop connections with mobile networks worldwide. The acquisition will see both Cloudhopper’s founder Joe Lauer and director of carrier integration Kristin Kanaar join the Twitter mobile team.

This acquisition folllows on from the recent news that Twitter will be launching allowing advertisers to place ads on the top of some Twitter.com popular search pages, using Promoted Tweets. And the announcement of the acquisition of Tweetie, the iPhone Twitter App.
