Barclays Pingit will allow you to send money using your Twitter handle

Barclays has announced that Pingit users in the UK will be able to use their smartphones to send money using Twitter handles, which would remove the requirement for mobile numbers and bank account details to be exchanged. The new feature will go live on March 10.

All that will be required is your Twitter handle, which will need to be added to the Pingit profile settings. The recipient will also need to be signed up through Twitter for the feature to work. The best part about Pingit is you don't need to own an account with Barclays, and the apps are available for everyone.
