Since the launch of Barclays' Pingit app, it's become almost impossible to dodge paying your share of Friday night's curry. The mobile payment service lets you transfer money to whichever mate picked up the bill, regardless of where you both bank, using just their mobile number. Come March 10th, however, you'll be able to skip entering that 11-digit number and simply use your friend's Twitter handle instead. For individuals and small business to start receiving Twitter payments through Pingit, they simply need to link their @name to their Pingit profile from within the app, and they're good to go. Now get off our back Andy -- you've been chasing us about that beer money for weeks.
