Twitter Has Officially Gone To The Dogs

Attention, dog lovers! Mattel is introducing a gizmo called “Puppy Tweets,” its first-ever toy created for our four-legged friends And it’s exactly what you think it is—well, mostly, according to CNN Money. “Puppy Tweets is a plastic tag with a sound and motion sensor that you attach to your pet’s dog collar and connect its USB receiver to your computer. Then you create a Twitter account for your dog and enjoy updates all day … ” The sensor picks up on what your dog is doing and sends out activity-corresponding tweets like “I finally caught that tail I’ve been chasing and … OOUUUCHH!” while playing, “some days it feels like my paw is permanently on the snooze button!” during nap time, and “YAHOOOOOOO! Some days you just gotta get your bark on,” while woofing their head off. Curious, yet? Well, check it out in stores this fall (it’ll cost $29.99). Please, please, please don’t let Paris Hilton and her 98284923123 chihuahuas get a hold of this… [Um, am I alone in being seriously freaked out by this gadget!? — Editor] [CNN Money via Red Riley]
