Hooked on Twitter? Who isn’t nowadays, it seems. I know I’ve caught the bug – cough – cough – and I never thought I would. Sure, I saw blogging as being a realistic way to get my thoughts out onto the web, but Twitter? Nah. Then I signed up, and did nothing with it. Slowly I started using it more, then checking out stuff that other people said, and next thing I know, I’m hooked. Every morning, the very first thing I do is sit up in bed and check for Facebook and Twitter updates on my iPhone. Pathetic? Sure. But at least I admit it.
I use Tweetie for all of my iPhone updates, but I do have a copy of Twitteriffic on my Mac. Honestly, I had to shut it down, it was distracting me too much during the day. But now they offer vinyl and flocked versions of Ollie, the Twitteriffic mascot. So what does he do?
- Ollie is an adorable little bluebird that loves to chat about what’s going on.
- Approximately 4 inches tall (10 centimeters)
- Rotocast in high quality vinyl for a soft yet sturdy feel.
Of course, he doesn’t really talk to you, but that doesn’t matter. After all, it’s just another cool toy to stick on the nerd mantle, next to the Zoidberg from Futurama figurine and Lego Home One Mon Calamari Space Cruiser.
