The Twoddler: Twitter For Babies

The Twoddler: A Bit Much, Don't You Think?

Answering Twitter's new question; "What's happening?" could lead to enough answers on its own, but now a team in Belgium has developed a way for babies to use Twitter. The Twoddler is just a prototype for now, but it combines a popular kids' crib toy with the social networking service. When the baby performs different actions, they're recorded via Twitter.

The team added photos of the babies' parents to the basic toy, and sent data to Twitter based on what the child is doing. For instance, if the baby plays with the part of the toy close to his mother's face, sensors post a tweet to the effect of, "I miss my mommy." On one hand, it's a different way for parents to keep up with what their children are doing; on the other, it introduces the phenomenon of social networking at a much younger age than most parents would be comfortable with. Not to mention 85 percent of you supported an age restriction on social networks. I'm guessing you'd also agree that if you still sleep in a crib and wear diapers, you're too young to tweet. I'd say maybe best to stick with baby sign language for the basics.

this is too funny ...although it's kind of like anthropomorphizing on the baby

Oh, dear lord. Please cease and desist this sick social networking fad. C' toys? Can we stop this? When will people understand that the vast majority of humanity simply isn't that interesting to listen to...especially when they're IN DIAPERS.

I think this is seriously creepy and ridiculous. On almost any networking site is a disclimer that you have to be older than 13 to use it and now a baby should twitter? This is not right on so many levels...
