SLOUGH, U.K. -- Today represents another significant milestone in the growing maturity of the BlueVia developer platform from Telefónica. We are delighted to announce that BlueVia has successfully integrated with Twitter to enable O2 customers in the UK to interact with Twitter via MMS messaging.

From today O2 customers will be able to share photos on Twitter from any MMS capable mobile device. O2 customers can simply associate their mobile number with their Twitter account on the Twitter website. Once complete, they can share what’s happening around them and send photos to Twitter by sending a message to short code 86444. Customers are charged at their standard MMS rate.

Jose Valles, Head of BlueVia, said: “We’re very excited about this new service and believe that both Twitter and O2 will see great benefits come of it. Our customers in the UK will satisfy a need of tweeting in certain specific circumstances and that, we expect, will help Twitter grow its presence in the UK. On the other side, we in BlueVia are satisfied by the service provided by our platform to Twitter engineers and are looking forward to spread this service to the whole footprint of Telefónica.”
