Pat Phelan launched his new service, Twitterfone to much excitement last night.
Techcrunch had the scoop and as Michael Arrington offered a free account to one of the commenters, he got some interesting responses!
In the third grade, a crazy, spooky looking girl chased me with finger paint, and smeared it on my shirt, cackling like the wicked witch. It left emotional scars (at night I still hear the laughing, and I constantly check the back of shirts I’m wearing in the mirror).
The Twitterfone account would help with the healing.
If you haven’t guessed by the title of this post already, Twitterfone allows you to speak your tweets instead of texting them or typing them on a device. You can hear my Hello World voice tweet as well as read it. I have to admit, I found it harder to articulate a short sentence under the pressure of speaking into a phone than to type it, but that’s just me. My next oral masterpiece will be me saying my own name so Charles doesn’t murder it on the WordPress Podcast next time!
One person’s experienes with Ireland’s newest mobile phone operator, 3, are less than promising. Missed calls, no dialtone, bad coverage, ridiculous limits on the size of bills for new users. Doesn’t sound good.
3 are offering 5 cent text, picture and video messaging right now but if their service is bad, what use are they, even if cheap? (via)
