Seriously, here’s a cool device for your dog that will tweet your dog’s status onto Twitter. You can actually pre-order this on Amazon for $29.99 here.
Tweets are the new Barks! Ever wonder what your pup is doing while you’re away? Well, now you can get the 411 with text messages from Puppy Tweets! Whenever your dog moves, barks (or just naps), the tag knows it and sends a WiFi signal to your computer which then sends you a Tweet via Twitter. Simply set up a Twitter page for your dog and your Puppy Tweets tag starts generating Tweets. Puppy Tweets comes pre-loaded with over 500 phrases that put a humorous or insightful spin on your dog’s daily activity. For example, a bark may generate a Tweet of: “I bark because I miss you. There I said it. Now hurry home.” A quick run through the house could produce: “I finally caught that tail I’ve been chasing and…OOUUUCHH!” Invite your friends and family to follow your pet on Twitter and help your dog follow his or her favorite puppy pals or celebrities. Puppy Twitter lets you connect with your pet over the Internet. It’s a great way to brighten your day ’cause a Tweet from your pooch is a virtual smooch!
What I wish they added for Puppy Tweets 2.0?
They should really add some GPS capability to PuppyTweets so you can also keep track of where your dog has been. Better yet, geo-tag each tweet with status updates. I believe Twitter API now allows you to update your GPS location.
