Has Your Baby Tweeted Today?
We all knew it was just a matter of time. Twitter has filtered down to the youngest among us, even though they have no clue they’re tweeting. Baby’s means of communication is Twoddler, and here’s a bit of what Wired.com has to say about it:
“Twoddler is a modified Fisher Price activity center, the kind that toddlers have tweaked and poked for what seems like generations. The difference is that this one has its activities monitored by a computer and the activities are translated into Tweets. The example uses a baby called Yorin, and if he spends, say, a few minutes playing with a picture of his mother, this Tweet will be forced on the world: “@mommy_yorin Yorin misses mommy and looks forward playing with her this evening”. Further, if he annoyingly bangs on the bell, over and over, for far too long, the computer will translate this to say “Yorin is showing off his music skills with a new tune.”
Clever. I wonder what the tweet says when Yorin spits up breakfast on the Twoddler…
