Go800 is a company behind the so called “One Text, You Connect” service which allows users to place phone calls by giving a voice to the names in their social world. For the first 90 days, the service is pitched toward Twitter users and after that – it’s going to be offered on a “first come first serve” basis and opened to other social networks.
With Go800, anyone can text a person’s Go800-enabled Twitter name and be connected live without knowing or dialing a phone number. Twitter users across the U.S. and Canada can already register and use the service on the Go800 platform, whereas those living elsewhere can only reserve their Twitter name for future use with the service. Go800 Starter accounts are FREE and come with 100 free minutes of usage per month. Higher usage plans will soon be available.
Once your Twitter name is enabled on the Go800 platform, you can enter the phone number you would like others to connect to — i.e. mobile phone, Google Voice number, Skype number, Toll-free, land line, etc. Once that is set, your friends can quickly reach you by texting your Twitter name to 46800 (Go800).
Finally — and this is very important — Go800 offers customizable privacy options to protect the identity of customers and their phone numbers…
