Vodafone New Zealand has signed an agreement with Twitter allowing customers to send updates to and receive TXT notifications from the ever popular messaging network used to share and discover what’s happening – right now. Only Vodafone customers are able to use this service in New Zealand.
Vodafone customers will be able to receive TXT messages from people they choose to follow via TXT on Twitter and send messages to a short code (TWTR/8987) for their “tweets”, @replies, or to follow someone on the go.
Best of all, regular TXT charges will apply to customers sending tweets via TXT and all TXT message updates sent from Twitter will be free of charge.

Joy! This will make it much easier to roam and Twit for those of us not lucky (or rich) enough to afford 3G
