Consumers can send and receive Twitter updates via SMS on Bell, Rogers and Fido.
The short code for the Twitter service is 21212 for both networks. This new SMS service is free for those on text messaging plans. Since an SMS tweet is treated as a regular SMS and not as a premium service, messages sent in excess of the allotted SMS for a particular plan will simply be charge 15 cents per message. Those who are not on a text messaging plan will receive out-of-plan messaging charges if they avail of this service.
