Twitter's now data-free for Virgin Mobile customers

18 July 2017

Further bolstering our data-free social messaging offering

Great news for if you’re a Virgin Mobile customer: you can now use Twitter without eating into your data.

It’s an exciting milestone for Virgin Mobile, and further bolsters our existing data-free social messaging service. We’re the only UK mobile provider to offer Twitter - as well as Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp - data-free with all our superfast 4G plans.

Innovating our mobile service is something that the whole Virgin Mobile team is extremely passionate about. We know our customers want more than extra texts and minutes. They want unique services that really make a difference to them and more closely align with their mobile lifestyle. We want to focus our services towards how our customers use their devices and live their lives, giving them value that they can see and understand.

That’s why we led the way by offering Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp data-free. And now we’ve expanded our data-free social offering to include Twitter which, when combined with fast 4G and data rollover, is transforming the future of social messaging on mobile. It’s ensuring our customers never have to worry about keeping connected to the things and people they love.

The data-free use of Twitter applies to all features on the app, apart from live video content. To make it as easy as possible for our customers to go data-free, there’s no extra cost or process beyond simply downloading the Twitter app. And to make sure no leftover data goes to waste we’ll also continue to offer ‘Data Rollover’ as part of our plans, meaning that any mobile data remaining at the end of a month is transferred into the next month’s data allowance. It’s that simple.

Just another example of how we’re making good things happen on mobile. Find out more at
