The best tweets in life are free

After getting social media enthusiasts all a-Twitter over offering tweets via short message service (SMS), Bell Canada managed to outrage users by slapping a 15 cent per-tweet charge.

According to the official Twitter blog, however, things have been worked out. “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,” the company said in a statement, CBC reported.

Bell reportedly said they were charging the surcharge because it considered a premium service, which is ironic for an activity many business executives would consider a waste of time. Make your cell phone calls now before Bell decides picking up the phone or hanging it up is a premium service, too.
