RCom to offer free Twitter access for 90 days

In line with similar tie-ups between certain operators and Facebook, Reliance Communications’ GSM service has tied up with Twitter to offer free data access for 90 days for using the messaging service.

‘Reliance Twitter Access Pack’ is a promotional offer for a period of 90 days during this T20 cricketing season which comes bundled for all new Reliance GSM prepaid subscribers with unlimited Twitter access without paying any extra data consumption charges. Subscribers may connect to “Twitter Access” by simply visiting twitter.com or mobile.twitter.com on their Reliance GSM prepaid device, RCom said.

As part of the new “Twitter Access” program, Twitter has customized the Twitter app wherein, every customer who has subscribed the ‘Reliance Twitter Access Pack’ will be able to view a message on the header and footer of the app mentioning Twitter is free of charge with Reliance Mobile. This Twitter app will pop up a message of additional data consumption charges only if any Reliance GSM prepaid subscriber chooses to visit an external link while browsing updates on Twitter.

The pack provides unlimited usage of Twitter without any extra data consumption charges, RCom said.
