The Emirates Islamic Bank offers many convenient ways for its customers to bank—online, by phone, text message and now, a new social banking tool is being introduced.

The Social Banking option makes it possible for customers to use Twitter in order to collect account and credit card information and five most recent transactions. In order to make the service secure, users must activate the feature via a web browser or the bank's mobile app.

The UAE is known for being one of the most socially connected countries in the world, with hundreds of thousands of active Twitter users. Considering that there are other services that make it possible to transfer money to friends via SMS or book a hotel room using only social media, this forward-thinking service will be highly appealing to savvy Emirates Islamic Bank customers.
