Remember that ornate wooden cuckoo clock that hung on the wall at your grandparents' house? Now, somebody has modified one of those avian timepieces
to wirelessly monitor and display Twitter
updates. The Twitwee Clock cuckoos each time a new tweet appears in your personal stream and displays the text on a tiny built-in screen. When there's no activity on Twitter (like that ever happens), the screen shows a simple, old-fashioned clock face. The clock
can be programmed to monitor any Twitter stream, or even to display tweets that contain a specific hashtag. If you get bored, you can tweet @TwitweeClock and the miniature bird pops out and makes that annoying cuckoo sound.
The Twitwee Clock is a modern spin on a classic piece of furniture, and it looks darn good, too. Still, we're not sure how we feel about a bird chirping every time one of our friends tweets about eating yogurt or watching the newest episode of 'Lost.'
