Go800 is the new way of placing phone calls with names not numbers.
Go800 allows anyone to text a personâ€™s Go800 enabled Twitter name and be connected live without knowing or dialing a phone number.
The One Text, You Connect service works by enabling your Twitter name on the Go800 platform and entering the phone number you would like others to connect to (mobile phone, Google Voice number, Skype number, Toll-free, land line, etc). With your Twitter name now â€œGo800 Enabled,â€ friends, family, social or business contacts can instantly reach you within seconds by texting your Twitter name to 46800 (Go800).
There are countless personal, professional, and business uses for Go800â€™s One Text, You Connect service. Individuals can easily give out their Twitter name instead of phone numbers online, at social events, and conferences. Celebrities, politicians, and other public figures can connect their Google Voice numbers, leaving personalized daily messages. The local pizza shop can connect you with someone to take your order. Charities can connect you with a live operator to get your donations. Brands can add easy to remember text-to-talk prompts to print advertising, radio spots, and television commercials.
Go800 has an array of easily customizable and secure privacy options to protect the identity of customers and their phone numbers. These privacy options include allowing everyone to contact the user using their Twitter name, turning the service off completely, or only allowing the people you trust to contact you via this method. Users can also report abuse directly to the Go800 team on their website.
Go800 is based in Toronto, Canada and is dedicated to creating technology that allows individuals to connect in more efficient ways. Go800 is a service of GOCOM Corporation.
