Tata DOCOMO GSM Prepaid Subscribers Can Now Recharge Their Balance Via Twitter

TwittCom service also enables Value-Added Services through a simple process.


There are several means available these days for prepaid mobile subscribers to recharge their phone balance, right from online recharges and top-up cards to eWallet services. Now, Tata DOCOMO has come up with a unique way to let its GSM users recharge their account balances and activate value added services via tweets and hashtags. Using the Twittcom service, users can register their numbers using the company's Twitter handle (@tatadocomo), followed by "#reg" (without quotes) and your mobile number.

Once complete, the subscribers will receive a pin code for verification via SMS, after which they should key in @tatadocomo #code followed by the pin code via Twitter. Once the proces is complete, they will receive a retweet confirming their registration. For activating value-added services through Twitter, the subscriber must type @tatadocomo #act# <Service><value>. Once active, they will receive a confirmatory tweet once the service has been activated. Let's hope this works as well as the company claims.
