MTN South Africa has reiterated its commitment to continue its Free Twitter promotion, and has repriced its WhatsApp social media bundles. MTN brought in the Free Twitter promotion three years ago. Customers do not need to opt in and no minimum balance is required. A review of customer usage has revealed that 99.1 percent of all Twitter users on MTN are using substantially less than 500 MB every day, and 80 percent are using no more than 10 MB of Twitter data per day.
