Follow Your Dog On Twitter?
You’ve heard of people setting up Myspace and Facebook accounts for their dogs…but Twitter? Don’t you have to, like, type stuff on there?
Check this out:
Toy company Mattel Inc. has announced its plan to release a new product called Puppy Tweets, which purports to allow dogs to “tweet” their daily activities for their owners’ entertainment. Of course, dogs can’t actually type, so the product — which will retail for $29.99 — uses a sound and motion sensor to determine what pets might be up to.
Attached to a dog’s collar, the plastic tag randomly generates one of 500 canned tweets when it detects barking or movement and automatically posts an update to Fido’s own Twitter page.
I read a few different articles about this product–of course all just made fun of it, which is pretty damn easy to do, actually.
Then again, when your friends are Tweeting stuff like “I want pizza for dinner,” 500 random tweets from your dog might actually be more interesting.
