Orange Introduces Twitter Photo Sharing via MMS

By Jason Ankeny

European operator Orange announced an agreement with microblogging giant Twitter to enable subscribers to send and receive Twitter updates directly from their phones via text messaging--according to Orange, it is also the first mobile carrier to enable Twitter photo uploads and sharing via MMS.

Orange notes that customers will be able to update their own tweets, send direct messages to other Twitter users and receive alerts on Twitter activity through SMS--all alerts will be available free, with uploads included either in subscribers' bundles or charged at the usual data rate. In addition, users can post their photos to Orange UK's Snapshot photo-sharing site, which automatically posts the link directly to Twitter in a tweet and enables followers to add comments.

Twitter also will join Facebook, MySpace and Bebo as part of Orange's Social Life social media aggregator, accessible via the Orange World portal. Social Life enables subscribers to view and post updates and get in touch with contacts across all four social networks at the same time via single log-in. [FierceMobileContent]
