Just when you thought the Twitter universe couldn’t get anymore creative JAJAH@Call pops up.
JAJAH@Call basically allows you to make free two-minute phone calls to any Twitter user who is also signed up for the service.
JAJAH gives short messages a voice. With the new JAJAH application, Twitter users can make free phone calls on their favorite microblogging service. Now in Beta, JAJAH@Call allows you to make a free two minute call (the verbal equivalent of a tweet) to other JAJAH@Call users. It’s free, it’s easy and works no matter how you use Twitter, whether it’s on your cellphone, via Seesmic, TweetDeck, or any other way.
The Beta is available to selected users. To check if you’re one of them, log in to your account. Under “My Services” in “My Account” page you will see “Twitter Calls.” If this doesn’t appear, and you would like an invitation, send an email to [email protected]
Seems like an interesting idea, but I’m wondering how many people will actually use this service? Consider that it might use your minutes unless it’s one number you can add to something like T-Mobile’s myFaves.
Would you use this service?

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA–(Marketwire – September 17, 2009) – JAJAH, the world’s most innovative IP communications company, today announced the beta-launch of its Twitter calling solution, JAJAH@call. Qualified JAJAH users with a Twitter account can now make phone calls via Twitter free of charge.
@calls are made without revealing your number and without needing to know the number of the person you wish to call — all you need is their Twitter username.
How does it work?
To make a call simply send a Twitter message (tweet) with “@call @username” where the ‘username’ is the Twitter name of the person you wish to call. If that person follows you on Twitter, a free two-minute call — the verbal equivalent of a tweet — will be initiated. Both Twitter users need to be JAJAH users as well.
JAJAH@call works no matter how you use Twitter, whether it’s on a computer or mobile phone, at Twitter directly or using a Twitter-client such as Seesmic (web and desktop), TwitterBerry (BlackBerry), Tweetie and Twitterfon (iPhone), and Twidroid (Android).
