NTT Docomo will leverage its mobile expertise, with support from Twitter, to develop innovative applications and services incorporating Twitter features for Docomo feature phones and smartphones.

Real-time Tweets and other Twitter content will be added to the search results on the Docomo “i-mode” portal for feature phones and the “docomo market” portal for smartphones. Docomo expects to launch the service for feature phones this summer and for smartphones later this year or early next year.

Docomo also plans to update an existing “touch and follow” application for feature phones, which will allow two Docomo customers to begin following each other quickly and easily by simply placing their feature phones together to exchange follow permissions via the NFC data transmission function of Docomo phones.
