    This is the coolest new Twitter App - Pockets

    POCKETS SENDS PRIVATE VOICEMAILS VIA TWITTER:

    It must be said that Twitter/voicemail mashup Pockets has great potential for spammy misuse. Used properly, though, it's a pretty novel way to send a voicemail message to someone you know through Twitter but don't have a phone number for.

    Pockets signs you in and authenticates itself with your Twitter account, then asks for your phone number and a Twitter username to send voicemail to. Hit "Send Voicemail," and the app calls you to record a message. Hang up, and Pockets posts an @whoever reply to your recipient, asking them to likewise authenticate their username and then hear the message.

    Like we said up top, this would be really annoying, if used as a way around email barriers to push a spam-like message through. But blocking Pockets on Twitter wouldn't be all that hard if you had to, and the app does offer potential for actual, useful purposes.
    Pockets is free to use, requires a Twitter account and phone number.

    Head over to:
    Twitter
    and check it out.

    You can view a video on it here:

    I tried this with Laney and it worked perfectly

    It works great, tried it out with Laney. The system calls you back from their website, you record a voicemail and it sends it to the Twitter account you selected. They listen to the voicemail through their Twitter client.
    A lot of fun
