I'm not sure where you heard that, but I was receiving them from Twitter (40404) this weekend, so it doesn't look like they stopped all of them (if they stopped any of them).

I was told years ago (2 or 3 even) than short codes had been blocked. I called to question about it when I stopped receiving text messages from facebook notifications and I was told they had been automatically blocked because it would cost $2 per message if I enabled it. I used to use the google, facebook, and some other short code messaging numbers and they just don't work for me anymore.

I dont believe they have stopped. I still receive text messages from facebook, my local PD, twitter and several others.
