Phone Calls Via Twitter [pcworld.com]
Twitter users will soon be able to make short phone calls for free directly through the micro-blogging service. JaJah, an Internet telephony company that allows you to make VoIP calls using your landline or cell phone, today is launching the beta version of its new Twitter calling service, named @call.

I can already make unlimited voip calls for free to over 100 countries on my land line ..and my cell phone is already for making phone calls :) ..and I use neither of them to twitter ..( and if I did I'd have to pay the telco to send the sms ..so "free" appears to be hype for re-inventing the wheel ..but ersatz shinier and double the cost ) ..marketing a la starbucks ..

Probably the point is that you can phone people by using their @twitter handle, rather than knowing their number.
Not sure that is a *good* idea! ;)
