Free MTN Twitter notifications on Vodacom

A few Twitter for Android users in South Africa recently reported that they received notifications saying MTN was giving them free access to Twitter, despite not being MTN subscribers.

MTN announced its promotion to offer free access to Twitter for subscribers at the start of May 2014.

The promotion was available to all MTN subscribers and was originally set to run from 1 May 2014 to 31 July 2014. It is still ongoing.

“MTN in partnership with Twitter has zero-rated access to Twitter for MTN customers,” said MTN SA’s chief marketing officer Larry Annetts when asked about notifications of free access being sent to Vodacom subscribers.

Annetts said they are aware that certain MSISDNs [mobile phone numbers] which are not on the MTN network have received the messages.

“Work is being done to eliminate this,” Annetts said.
