There Are People Who Tweet By Fax! The Perfect Granny Xmas Gift :D

While we said half-jokingly that there is a Twitter by snail mail service, we never imagined that there is an actual market for it!

Apparently, 87 year old Dorothy Miller uses a service called Celery to update her Twitter and Facebook accounts by fax to stay in touch with her family. Yes, the old telefax! She is also a fan of short messages since she complains about how her daughter “she talks too much and it takes too much of my time, but she can read my Twittering here and see can see what her mother is doing.”

The Celery service also supports RSS feeds, blogs and email. You can also receive full attachments and color copies of your emails. Now I wonder how people using this service will understand what an RSS feed is in the first place.

Any ideas? Will you give this to your Granny is Christmas?

    Very interesting :) I don't think my granny would appreciate it as a Christmas gift, but I'm sure it will be the only gift under the tree which everyone would never forget!
