Now everyone on the Internet will know if you’re a dog. Intended for owners looking for a connection with their pet when they can’t be together, the Puppy Tweets device is attached to a dog’s collar and sends a signal to the owner’s computer, which then updates to Twitter throughout the day. Posts consist of preworded messages based on how active the dog is and whether or not it has been barking.
