How to SMS within a group?

I want my family to be able to easily SMS the entire an email group, but for SMS.

I can set this up on my Blackberry by making a group by hand, but that only works for me, obviously. I was thinking about some sort of group Twitter thing, but the solutions I've found online haven't worked the way I want.

Any advice?

If within the USA, GroupMe.

A private Twitter account.

Seconding GroupMe! I'm biased, they're my BFFs. The product is awesome and free.

on the iPhone, if you get a group SMS, all of your replies go to the entire group. It ends up looking kind of like a chat room, actually.

What a great Idea! I want to set this up. How would one do this where the group are spread all over the world?

I'm curious how you were trying to do it with Twitter?

GroupMe works for this, but I will say this: My partner at work is fond of it, but when a discussion starts happening on it - it is the Most Annoying Thing Ever for anyone receiving a shitload of texts which they have no real interest in.

bzzz. bzzz. bzzz. ad infinitum.
