You might call it "VoIP preparedness"
March 31, 2011 by iCall Team Member
One of our first tweets back in 2008 was, "Not sure what we could be using twitter for." Since then, our follower base has grown to more than 900 people who are interested in VoIP and iCall. We have initiated, interjected into and continued a number of conversations with iCall users and non-users alike. Additionally, we have shared information about company and product progression, as well as listened to news and updates from the industry. Twitter has turned into a valuable tool for us to communicate with you in "real time" on a more personal level. We now know exactly what we can use Twitter for, and we're continuing to take full advantage of the service.
We're also allowing you to take advantage of iCall on Twitter by providing you with company and product updates, answering any questions you may have about our services and giving you the chance to win cool prizes.
Now through April 4, if you follow us on Twitter, you'll be entered to win an iCall Care Package which includes all the items you need to live the VoIP lifestyle. Our care package includes an iPod Touch, Plantronics headphones and a one-month unlimited subscription to iCall.
To enter, "Follow" us on Twitter, and double your chances of winning by "Liking" our page on Facebook before April 4. If you already follow us on Twitter, post this tweet on your Twitter account, and we'll be sure to include you in the giveaway: "@icall I want to be entered to win an iCall Care Package!" We'll announce three winners on April 5. For specific information on the odds of winning, please see Section 3 of the Official Rules below.
