UK Twitter users to get SMS service back?

Rumours abound – an article on Times Online says

The other big news for UK Twitterers is that free SMS is going to be restored for the UK and other countries. Twitter has hired a mobile business development director and that is his first task.

This apparently comes from an intervew with Biz Stone, one of Twitter’s founders.

Now, I’m sure the mobile networks would love to have the traffic that Twitter generates. But they won’t be giving it away for free – nor are they allowed to under the current regulatory model. So someone will have to pay. Note that the person charged with sorting it out is the new ‘Mobile Business Development Director’ – SMS will have to be part of Twitter’s business model – whatever that ends up being.

No more free rides.
