Rogers and Fido have announced that customers can now send and receive updates from Twitter by SMS text message, via short code 21212. The feature comes at no additional cost for customers on text messaging plans.
The service hasn’t gone live just yet, but when it does, customers who subscribe to a text messaging plan will be able to update their Twitter status and receive updates via SMS. Twitter texts are treated as standard messages under all text messaging plans.
Kudos to the Rogers/Fido group for making a deal with Twitter. Now if only carriers would preload devices with App World.
