AIM-listed mobile VAS provider IMImobile has partnered UK's Post Office to launch a new 'Tweet to Donate' payment solution that will allow Post Office to process donations via Twitter for BBC's Children in Need charity campaign. Twitter users will be able to donate from within the Twitter app, using this service. To donate, users need to follow the Post Office's Twitter account and tweet the hashtag #MakeMeAHero.
