Over the past little while, I’ve been working on a new service that lets you use any phone to post audio updates to your twitter account. The service is called CallTweetbeta and it is now open to the public.
While many people enjoy using Twitter and other social media sites from “smartphones” not everyone has one and some find them too complicated to use. CallTweet lets you stay connected and “twittering” from any telephone, regardless of where you are. And since the service is powered by your voice, you can post messages longer than 140 characters.
It was really fun to build the site as I got to use the new Twitter OAuth API and continue to explore new and interesting ways to integrate the traditional PSTN into the web 2.0 world.
I hope you enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed building it.
