Twitter messages reception over SMS coming to O2 UK

image After Vodafone UK, now also O2 UK will offer it:

An O2 spokesperson confirmed that O2 has "teamed up with Twitter to turn Twitter updates into free text messages, meaning @ replies and direct messages just got a little more direct."

From the start of August, every O2 customer will be able to switch on text notifications within Twitter and receive replies and direct messages, free. O2 users will also be able to send updates to Twitter as part of their normal text message bundle or for the cost of a normal text. Once enabled, users will be alerted when they have an @reply or direct message. Users can choose to turn off notifications at certain times if they wish. O2 also has a fair use policy for Twitter texts. The company is urging users to try and "stay below 600 messages per month".
