Softbank Frameworks let you send packages using Twitter ID
Softbank Frameworks is a logistics company and a subsidiary of Softbank. Recently they have added a new service to their already original service option of “delivery via e-mail address or mobile phone address” . The new service allows you to send packages using your Twitter ID and the Twitter ID of the recipient. The only thing you need to do is to apply online for the package you would like to send. You don’t need to state neither your own physical address or that of the recipient, Twitter IDs work instead of those addresses. Once your package arrives at the agent, they contact the recipient to confirm if he/she would like to receive it and if affirmative they ask for the delivery address. The service is limited to 5kg and has a fixed fee of 990 yen.
In case you may be wondering when on earth you would need such a service, the company helps you by mentioning on their website such possible scenarios as sending a birthday gift to your friend of whom you just know Twitter ID and to receive an item you got from an auction site without giving your privacy information.
