Sending money with a Tweet

Paris, France: S-money, a subsidiary of Groupe BPCE, announced  that from October this year, users will be able to send money to one another  simply by tweeting to  @user to whom they wish to send money. The recipient does not even need to be a S-Money user.

The service will  be available in France only . Via the S-Money smartphone application, users can select the amount of money they wish to transfer, as well as the recipient, and, assuming you know the recipient’s Twitter handle, you can send them a unique URL allowing them to retrieve their money.
