When I first heard about hacklabTOilet, a toilet that sends out a tweet every time it's flushed, my immediate reaction was "How…banal."
But then, of course, I remembered that everything about Twitter is banal. In a world where people just don't give a you-know-what, why not a twittering toilet?
Considering what most of my tweets look like ("4:46 PM, Sept. 10 - i can't remember if i locked my car! agh!"..."1:47 PM, Sept. 17 - so bored"..."11:27 AM, September 30 - deadmau5 in LA?!"), a toilet probably has more frequent tweets, if not more interesting ones.
