Bangalore, May 29, 2012: In what is arguably the First of its kind e-commerce initiative by a telecom company in the world, Tata DOCOMO, the unified telecom brand of Tata Teleservices Limited (TTL), has introduced an application for its GSM Pre -paid customers that will allow them to recharge and activate a Value added service/ application through Twitter. For registering their numbers customers have to follow a simple process: go to the twitter handle of the company @tatadocomo, type in #reg <Mobile Number> and they will receive a pin code for verification through SMS. Once the verification code is received, customers need to go to the twitter handle again, key in #code <Pincode> and they will get a retweet confirming registration. For activating value added services the process is simple, a customer just needs to go to the handle (@tatadocomo) and key in #act# <Service><value>. They will get a twit back confirming activation of the service.
The app. Twittcom, has been developed indigenously by the team at Tata Teleservices Limited.
Says Ritesh Ghosal, Head of Brand Marketing at Tata Teleservices: “With the increasing consumption of Internet and the rise of social media it makes ample sense to be present on the medium where people are spending time at present or they are likely to spend time in the future. Our community on Facebook is amongst the strongest in the world and Twitter too will reach the same levels quite soon.”
