Twitter is certainly a popular service, and deservedly so, but sometimes people take things to extremes. Would you want your dog to be tweeting as well? It seems that there are folks out there who would certainly want such an arrangement. Mattel has come up with a device dubbed ‘Puppy Tweets’, which you can attach you the puppy’s collar, allowing it to tweet for your dog. You’ll still need to help your dog create a Twitter account, and after everything has been set up, if your dog is barking non-stop at something, it’ll tweet stuff like “YAHOOOOOOO! Somedays you just gotta get your bark on.” If your dog just ran around in circles for a long time, it might tweet something along the lines of “I finally caught that tail I’ve been chasing and…OOUUUCHH!” Apparently this product wants to capitalize on peoples’ love for their dogs, as well as the trend for social media and real-time communication. It might seem rather pointless to you, but it’ll be debuting at next month’s Toy Fair in New York, so if you want to check it out, that’s where you can probably catch a glimpse of it.
