'Cool': MyWitness takes off

2008-05-20 00:00

MyWitness is the first of its kind for any newspaper in South Africa. For anyone who has a data-enabled cellphone, MyWitness offers the cheapest way of keeping in touch with anything and anyone.

A group of media students from the UKZN were yesterday introduced to MyWitness and shown how to use the site on their cellphone. “Impressive” and “cool” was how some students described the new service.

MyWitness offers readers the ability to communicate with family and friends for as little as two cents at a time. MyWitness also offers cheap SMS (25c per SMS) and MMS (69c per MMS) and online banking.

The Witness will be showing readers how to use the facility at the 2008 Royal Show, in the newspaper and online at www.witness.co.za. Keep checking to find out more.
