Bird Information Twitter Sevice

The Bird Information Twitter Service is one of the most innovative, reliable and cost-effective ways of receiving instant bird news - both in the field or at home. The messages are exactly the same as those that go out on the pager, and they appear on Twitter at exactly the same time. The service can be received on Smartphones (through the free official Twitter app, which works equally well on Apple, Android or Blackberry systems) or a computer. Mobile phone use does require a connection to either 3G or Wifi to operate, but national coverage is now at least equal to the Pager and being extended all the time. The Twitter service is far quicker to load on 3G than any website subscription or app that is currently available for bird news on the market.
