Exclusive: New international features coming to Twitterfone beta today

TechCrunch recently took a look at Twitterfone, Pat Phelan’s new voice to text transcription service for Twitter, mentioning that it should be available in more countries soon.

We just got word that local support has been added for 13 more countries, bringing the list up to 17. Any Twitterfone user can dial into any of the numbers, making it perfect for firing off tweets while traveling.

The service now offers local numbers for the following countries:

  • Israel
  • Japan
  • Spain
  • Italy
  • Switzerland
  • Belgium
  • Finland
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Sweden
  • Australia
  • Canada

They’ve also fixed a problem they were having with delivering sign-up verification codes. If you’ve signed up in the past but were unable to verify your account, you’ll be able to kickstart the process by dialing a local number.

We’ll be taking a closer look at Twitterfone (and giving away some beta keys) real soon. Stay tuned!
