The French To Tweet Each Other Real Money Soon

Groupe BPCE, the second largest bank in France, is set to announce a new service that will let their customers send money over Twitter, according toReuters. It’s unclear exactly how the service will work, but reportedly it will make use of the bank’s existing mobile payments system S-Money. This move positions Twitter as an alternative to the existing P2P payment services like Venmo. And as with the introduction of the “buy button” earlier last month in the States, it’s up to the consumers to embrace or reject the little blue bird’s entry into eMoney.
