Tata Teleservices on Monday said it has launched a call and tweet service which enables subscribers to update their Twitter status by posting voice tweets from their mobiles without logging on to the Internet.
This service will not require any specific handset model and will be available for all the Tata Teleservices and Tata Teleservice Maharastra subscribers across India. The subscriber will be charged 80 paise per tweet.
"Subscribers need to just dial 50007 and send a voice tweet to update their status on Twitter. A user can speak in any language," said a statement released by the company.
The Call-n-Tweet service on the Tata Tele network leverages the superior capabilities of voice messages that had been sourced from Kirusa, global developers of voice messages based mobile value added service.
"The need to be connected to friends and acquaintances at your own pace is gaining momentum day by day. At last count, Twitter was attracting 190 million visitors per month and generating 65 million tweets a day. We wanted to give our subscribers an amazing option to log on to Twitter 24X7," said Lloyd Mathias, chief marketing officer, Tata Teleservices Ltd.
