Vodafone Users Offered A Tweet Deal

In addition to being able to access sites such as Facebook from their devices, Vodafone users could now find they are able to update their Twitter account, according to reports.

The micro-blogging site has grown in popularity over recent months, thanks in part to a number of celebrity users including TV personalities Stephen Fry and Jonathon Ross.

Now Vodafone has struck a deal with the network allowing users to add their latest Twitter status - or 'Tweet' as the procedure has become known - via SMS message.

As of yet, a full service that would allow consumers to receive @replies and other features has not been introduced, but some analysts have suggested this could follow.

IDC spokesman Jonathan Arber said: "As social networks move closer towards the Twitter 'real time' conversational model - as evidenced by Facebook's recent makeover - mobile updates become increasingly valuable to consumers."
