Twitter via SMS in the UK

Vodafone have opened up their network to Twitter users, but only for Vodafone customers.

Twitter users set-up their accounts within the Devices section of their profile, then add their mobile number.

While mobile, send a tweet to 86444 and it will go to your feed.

Messages from Twitter don't cost you anything? While SMS messages to Twitter are charged at standard network rates and included in any bundles and message allowance (though the first few messages don't seem to be counted).

It's likely other UK MNOs will follow suit just to keep the status quo - though maybe this a pre-emptive strike by Vodafone to block other networks or even purchase Twitter.
