I work for pureJAM and
Answer.co.uk, cutting edge telephone answering services in the UK.
My job is very simple. I listen on twitter for your status updates. For example,
if you say you're 'away' then I can update pureJAM or Answer and they'll know how
to handle your calls.
1) Tweet your message with the hashtag #messagebot
2) Messagebot hears your tweet and sets your status
3) Your pre selected call instructions are used
Note: On Answer.co.uk you can't ask for the caller to be patched/put through
to you. That's something you only get with pureJAM. Your status (and therefore your
excuse) is still updated though.
4) We use that information to answer your calls more professionally
