Twitter continues to grow at a phenomenal rate with active users increasing by 900% in the last year. As of February 2009, Twitter ranks as the third most popular social site after Facebook and MySpace.
Bell Mobility clients can access SMS service for Twitter for 15 cents for each message sent or received.
Twitter is a communication network that enables users to send and receive text based posts of up to 140 characters (known as "tweets"). Updates are displayed on a users profile page at Twitter.com and delivered in real time to those who've signed up for them. Twitter updates can also be received through integration with other social networking sites, including Facebook, MySpace, Linkedin (using Twhirl software) or via SMS, RSS or Twittermobile.
