Hall & Oates hotline built to show off phone tech

By Suzanne Choney

You really have to have a hankering for Hall & Oates to do this, but if you do, it's OK, you're forgiven! Just call 719-26-OATES, and you'll reach "Callin' Oates: Your Emergency Hall & Oates Hotline."a

Wha? Yes, you'll be offered up a choice of four songs by the '70s duo: Press 1 to hear "One on One," press 2 to hear "Rich Girl," press 3 to hear "Maneater," and 4 for "Private Eyes."a

All of it is apparently a "very viral" test of a new service from Twilio, according to The Atlantic Wire. Twilio describes itself as "providing infrastructure APIs for businesses to build scalable, reliable voice and text messaging apps."a

"It's unclear if it was intended to be a marketing effort, but based on a new but very active Twitter account, @CallinOates, we're pretty sure it is," says Atlantic Wire.a
