Peek To Release Dedicated Twitter Device

TwitterPeek

By Chris Scott Barr

Are you an important person? I mean someone that people hang on your every word, simply because even the most mundane actions in your life are news-worthy? Well I’ve got some awesome news for you. Peek, the makers of the Pronto email device have a new gadget up their sleeve. It looks very similar to the Pronto, but this one is dedicated to Twitter.

That’s right, if you don’t have a smartphone with a data plan, you can still tell everyone about the tiniest details of your life when you’re away from home. I honestly think that this is simply the worst idea ever. This is only encouraging people to post even more boring facts about their everyday life that no one cares about. Unless your life is filled with the same level of excitement of James Bond, you don’t need to be updating everyone hourly on it. There’s currently no word on pricing or availability.

    So, what happens when Twitter wears off? Paperweight? Frankly I've yet to twit anything or even go to the site.

    Paperweight? I like that idea. Could be the coming thing.

    I agree, I think someone that uses Twitter often should review it. I enjoy using twitter. I like being up-to-date with the people I follow. I also would like this so I don't miss another contest. A lot of paintball companies I follow do sticker give-always and I always miss them.

    I know a few people that are twitter freaks and they all just have phones that allow them to have a twitter app and use that.. I can't really get in to twitter though, why would anyone want to post their life much less read about others??

  • nenriel

    Wait, why would you need a data plan to Twitter from your phone? You can just do it all through text messaging …

    i think that people who use twitter and people with smart-phones are one in the same. I would think this is just be another piece of equipment to carry for most people.
