Here’s how it works…
1. Decide which phone you want to use to call in TwitterGrams. The phone must have Caller ID.
2. Visit the new phone signup page. Enter the phone number from step 1, and your Twitter username and password.
3. When you want to leave a TwitterGram using your phone, dial 646-716-6000. Leave a short message, less than half a minute (remember the 200K limit). Hang up when you’re finished.
If all goes well, your “gram” will be posted on Twitter within seconds.
Consumer Reports: “With all the attention given to its multimedia features and innovative touch screen, it’s almost easy to forget the iPhone is, well, a phone.”
This idea snuck up on me. I was watching an Apple ad on TV, while washing dishes, so I caught it at an angle, and lost the sense of scale, and thought the iPhone was a tablet computer. Then I realized that it is!
William Brehm wants to use Skype to phone-in a TwitterGram from Taiwan.
You can use Skype to call numbers in the U.S.
That used to be free, is it not free now??
Phil Wolff explains, Skype can’t send a unique Caller ID.
