Following on from the news that Orange was introducing MMS Twittering, Vodafone has outed news that from today it will be offering an official SMS retweet service.

Not long after the official retweet function was put into beta testing by Twitter itself, Vodafone is now allowing you to simply text the short number 86444 to retweet the last thing a user wrote.

You'll have to text "RT" plus the Twitter username for it to work, meaning you can retweet the last muttering from Stuff.tv's Twitter feed by texting "RT StuffTV".

It'll cost the same price as a text message to use this function, or it'll come out of your allowance, although you will receive a free message once successful to let you know what has been tweeted.

Of course the only problem we can see with this is fast tweeters, who by the time you've gone to retweet their message, may have put something different up you didn't want to retweet at all.

Have you tried it out? Let us know what you think how useful the new feature will be below.
