Tweet to Transfer Money

Happy Monday to you!

Would you ever send money through Twitter?

For Twitter users in France, this is a new option.

Twitter is partnering with one of France’s leading banks, Groupe BPCE, to offer Twitter users in France a way to transfer money through a tweet.

Individuals in France will be able to do this regardless of which bank they use, or which bank in France will be receiving the funds.

S-Money, which is the bank’s mobile payment facility, already allows cash transfers via text message.

It sounds like this bank is looking for a way to expand its mobile offerings and, interestingly enough, Twitter is the next step.

The question is…will individuals use it? Is this the future of mobile banking?

Time will tell.

Until next time,
