Twitter is now available on O2 via text messaging

Mobile users with the latest phones on the O2 network have been offered a new service that allows them to connect with one of the web's most popular social networking services.

Consumers with a Twitter account can now log in and communicate with their followers on the micro blogging portal via text message - as part of a free offering that has been launched earlier than previously planned.

In addition to receiving the latest tweets from their friends and associates on the site, users can also update their status for the price of a normal SMS and can receive direct messages to their phone.

Although there are no restrictions on the service, customers getting over 600 updates per month may be asked to limit their activity.

O2 recently announced its mobile broadband "amnesty", which asked portable web users to trade in their old dongles for a free Pay & Go replacement.
