New from Twitter – the thoughts of your dog! Have you ever wondered what your dog is up to while you’re gone? Don’t you wish you had a live feed detailing the mundane aspects of Rover’s day? Now you can have one, thanks to Mattel’s Puppy Tweets, which updates a Twitter account for your dog.

Sure, it sounds a little silly. But before you write off the idea, just remember – your dogs tweet of “Wishing I could work the remote control and licking my balls. #balls” is at least as worthwhile and socially relevant as anything that ever oozed off the Twitter feed of Joe Lieberman.
