To use Twitterfone, you need to register via an invitation, and verify your phone number and your Twitter account.

Thereafter any message (Tweet) you send will be transcribed, and posted to Twitter along with a link to the recording If the message happned to exceed the Twillters maximun message length, only the first 140 characters is transcribed. The entire recording is still available for listening. Once you call the given number, there is a time limit of 15 seconds on the recording.

TwitterFone is great for when you're on the go - in the car, on a train, or running between meetings - and don't have WiFi or time to log on to the internet. TwitterFone transcribes what you've said from voice to text, and posts it to your Twitter feed for you.

According to the About page on TwitterFone, in order to use TwitterFone you need to have a Twitter account and a mobile phone. To get set up with TwitterFone, you need to have an invitation , which comes with a one-time only invitation number.

Once you have your invitation, you can register with the TwitterFone service. During registration, you'll be asked for your email address, your Twitter credentials, and your mobile phone number. As a security measure, we'll validate your mobile phone during the registration process by sending you a text message with a code in it, and asking you to enter that code on the website.

Once you're done that - you're done! You can start using TwitterFone immediately by dialing the local number we give you when you're registered.
