Phweet – Sweet!

I was on the first Phweet call!  Voice call over Twitter and with many folks at one time. Conversation contained within a URL. Really worth staying up late to actually experience it. It was fantastic – 7 of us from 3 different continents all chatting as if we were in the same room.  A PhweetParty!

If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions … Phweet will help!

  • Have you ever wished you could just Talk to your Twitter friend?
  • Have you ever wanted to spontaneously set up a Conference Call with your Twitter friends?
  • Have you ever felt irritated that you have to turn on a separate client to accept a Call?

Check out the Phweet blog for more details.

“A Phweet is a shortURL that makes conversations and conference calls possible between Twitter friends and across other social networks. Let your friends know you are talking. Invite them to join in. No numbers, no new profiles. Simple, just start Phweet talking!”

I really do like the philosophy embodied in the PhweetVision:

Our vision is to create a more open telephony and communications environment where the users take control and are not dictated to by numbers, directory services, or tariff barriers, while retaining increased control over their privacy and presence information.

This is revolutionary really.  Today Twitter .. tomorrow all social networks? Congratulations Stuart (my partner at Mosoci) and David!

Thanks! It wouldn’t have happened without some of your cajoling on some of the words and listening and reviewing the prototypes when I was last in India. It’s certainly not our standard research project anymore!
