Twitter Adds Voice Calling

Published September 17, 2009 - 1 Comment

Well this is interesting.  (Except for you anti-Twitter guys… you know who you are!)  Twitter is adding voice calling from any Twitter-enabled device, for free? Type @call @username and gab away for 2 minutes during the beta trial. 

I think that the best part of it, is that your phone number remains private through the call.  Let’s face it, those of us who use Twitter might have someone who follows us, and we’re fine with that, but we’re happy that we don’t get text messages from them directly.  Twitter allows us to turn them off easily, and decide who can reach us at our phone.  I suspect that it’ll be the same way with this new voice service.

Looking forward to testing this out with someone.  Now if only I had something to say that I could condense into 2 mins!
