As of today, New Zealand now has it's very own short code: 8987 (twtr!) If you live in New Zealand, you can send text messages to this local code rather than the UK long code we've been using. Supported carriers at this time are Vodafone and Telecom NZ.
Follow Telecom NZ! Fun fact.... the very popular NZ National rugby team ("The All Blacks") is also on Twitter http://twitter.com/nzru.
