Twitter Comes to Bell

February 26th, 2009


Twitter and Bell are pleased to announced full SMS service to Canadian users.  Twitter shut off the service to Canadians last year due to the high cost associated with the service.  The question is will Bell customers be charged for both sending and receiving SMS alerts from Twitter.

According to a press release published yesterday by Bell Mobility it says users will be charged $0.15 per message.

Bell Mobility clients can access SMS service for Twitter for 15 cents for each message sent or received. For more information, please visit

However Twitter’s company blog states the following:

Twitter and Bell have agreed that Bell customers on the company’s text messaging bundles will be able to receive unlimited incoming Twitter SMS messages at no extra charge.

I guess time will tell.  Bell Mobility is currently the only Canadian provider to offer Twitter SMS alerts.
