Ford Fiesta ready to tweet its way on the road

Hmmm, could there be new laws drawn up that specifically prevents drivers from tweeting while they’re behind the wheel? Ford is about to roll out a range of Twitter-equipped Ford Fiestas that will be released across the US, sporting a computer system running in-car, where it will be loaded with tweeting software called “Auto”matic Blog” that will send tweets to Twitter. Basically, you won’t need to do much, as the Ford Fiesta will automatically tweet all sorts of information that concerns your vehicle including sudden accelerations, decelerations, or swerves that happen on the road. Apart from that, there is a built-in camera that captures images of passengers who are about to throw up. Sounds like the perfect tool for parents to equip their teens’ cars with, but can it snap photos at night? Also, how much would the data charges cost alongside connectivity channel utilized?
