A week back news relating to Twitter started springing up in the online world. It was said that the social networking site would be made available to users even without the internet connection in their handsets.
Now, it seems that the rumors have come to reality as the new updates say that the social site is in talks with a start-up company in Singapore called the U2opia Mobile.
The main idea according to U2opia's CEO and co-founder, Sumesh Menon was to allow those users with entry-level handsets to access Twitter even if those phones do not offer internet connectivity. He further also stated that the service would be launched in Q1 of 2014.
The process is quite familiar with that of how Facebook functions without internet connections. Thus the ones with the basic handsets will have to dial a required code to receive a feed containing the most popular trending topics on Twitter.
Moreover, the U2opia Mobile has a Fonetwish service which allows the users to access these social sites without enabling data plans. The company with this service has has already achieved 11 million low-end phone users so far. Reports suggest that the company keeps 30% to 40% of what users pay to their mobile operator to be able to use Fonetwish. However, the service doesn't allow viewing of any pictures and graphics.
