If You Hate Twitter, Charatter Bear Will Surely Keep It That Way

Ty Dunitz January 28 Gadgets

Some people just don’t like Twitter – and can they be blamed? An ever-shifting sand of mostly-idle information, a Twitter account following even less than 50 people can be a terrible, cacaphonous racket of nothing in particular.

So how would you like to have every tweet read aloud to you? Japanese toy manufacturer WiZ isn’t about to wait for your answer, and has released the Charatter bear, a toy that – of course – reads incoming tweets in a shrill, grating octave. This particular author follows 52 people and receives a tweet about once every 90-120 seconds. Imagine how quickly this bear would drive a man insane.

But incredibly, WiZ says that sales of Charatter are off the heezy. And at $28, it’s not exactly the least affordable way to aggravate oneself.

What’s that, you want to know the horrors of Charatter for yourself? I thought you’d never ask.

I am sure you do not know Twitter at all.
A Twitter, you can find “mostly-idle information” if that is what you´re looking for.

If you are looking for something different, it ia there as well. You just have to want it.
