‘Tweet Your Food' Sends Tweets While You Eat
Food has a natural place on social media, and now it's letting its voice be heard
Thanks to Tweet Your Food, a project by Stupid Hackathon, food no longer has to be subjected to dozens of photo filters and degrading hashtags. Hackers created a device that lets your food tweet on your behalf every time you take a bite.
The set-up is fairly simple – a sensor is plugged directly into the food, which then sends info in real time to your social media account each time you take a bite.
The device is a fun take on the foodie culture that has enveloped the world of social media. Researchers have shown that food-related posts and pictures can be used to predict behaviors within societies, and this device is an extreme simplification of the representative power that food has over its users.
