    Mattel Puppy Tweets- Twitter Toy for Pets

    Mattel Puppy Tweets

    Mattel’s Puppy Tweets that allows your pet to send you a tweet via Twitter every time they move, bark or sleep. The device is pre-loaded with over 500 phrases that are designed to put an amusing spin on a mundane activity. Your pet barks – you get a message saying – “I bark because I miss you. There I said it. Now hurry home.”

    The pet is fitted with a tag that sends a WiFi signal to your computer, via a USB receiver, every time your pet moves. This in turn sends you a text via Twitter. You simply set up a Twitter page for your pet and once the tag is fitted, it starts generating tweets. The pre-loaded tweet phrases are designed to inform or amuse you about what your pet is up to while you are out. A movement might generate a tweet like: “Can we get some sparkling water for the toilet bowl” or “It’s hard to tweet when you’re all paws.”

    The device can be set at timed intervals, so you are not receiving tweets continuously. Your pet can “follow” fellow animal Tweeters or just catch up on the daily lives of Ashton and Demi. Pet owners can also see how popular their pet’s tweets are by the number of followers they collect. Extra tweets will be available for downloading at a later date.
