O2 UK follow Vodafone with SMS access to Twitter

UK O2 users can now send tweets from the mobile phone using SMS (and of course receive them via SMS too).

The system is set-up like the already working Vodafone system where device updates are enable per user and/or for replies and/or direct messages.

Messages are sent to (ro come from) 86444.

Sending messages to your phone is free while sending messages to Twitter will cost a the same as a standard SMS, though they can be included in any SMS bundle deal. O2 are operating a fair use policy whereby if you receive more than 600 messages per month, you'll be asked to cut your usage down.

It now only a matter of time before the other MNOs follow suit.
