Twitter’s Future–Robots Tweeting Each Other

Our household appliances could soon “tweet” their status, letting us know how hot/cool our home is, the status of clothes in the dryer, and monitor just about any activity we can think of. In Beijing, computer monitors are already tweeting the air quality, labeling it from good–to moderate–to unhealthy. This new wealth of information is basically the result of robots tweeting each other, and will play a huge role in the future of twitter. This growth is also the result of what the brains at MIT call “the internet of things,” and will have very interesting effects on our future.

And, of course, computers will never get any funny ideas from this. Right? (cough, cough) Hal.
