Twitter and other social networks have become so famous in India now that even handset makers in the country list their handset’s ability to talk to these social networks – a feature! On similar lines, Reliance Communications (RCom) has tied up with Twitter to make the microblogging website available to users via SMS.
RCom has also launched a social voice blogging service in an association with Bubble Motion, which will make it easy for users to become a follower of famous Indian celebs and stay up to date with text and voice updates directly from their favourite celebrities. RCoM is bringing in a number of famous Indian celebrities including leading Bollywood stars and singers who will launch this first-of-its-kind voice-based mobile blogging service in India.
In order to add a Twitter account to their mobile, customers have to send an SMS to the Twitter short code 53000 to sign up with the service. After getting registered, customers can start following their celebrities and catching up with friends. The service is currently available for free of charge till November 30.
