UK limited to receiving 250 twittering texts

Filed under: SMS,Twitter — admin @ 12:28 pm

I was shocked when I first read that Americans pay to receive texts the other week, although it has helped to explain why there have been many US-based sites for sending texts from the web, and few based in the UK. It is claimed that because of this Twitter is reducing the number of SMS messages that are Twittered to your phone to 250 in the.

However, whilst it is not the norm in the UK, it is possible to subscribe to certain services that will charge you every time you receive a text at a higher rate(e.g., certain news and horoscope services). Rather than limiting the Twitter service to a fixed number it would be better if you could get the first 250 free, and then if you wanted you could allow messages from a specific sub-set of feeds to continue being sent at a premium rate. Whilst you may not be willing to get the headlines from the Beeb at 25p a shot, you may happily pay to find out what your mates are up to.
