This new RealBird feature is very unique: Voice call handling with geo-enabled SMS message - 04/09/12 02:55 PM
This is one of the coolest and most unique features that we launched so far for the RealBird Text Message Marketing platform. The RealBird Text Message Marketing service is built on top of the Twilio infrastructure. As we wrote when we first launched in December, the primary goal was to provide a text (SMS) keyword marketing tool for you: your prospective buyers see your call-for-action message asking them to text a keyword to your Twilio phone number and when they do so, RealBird returns to them your property information via an SMS reply, while also capturing their phone numbers for you.
