The explosion in popularity of Twitter has been one of the Web's great social media success stories since Facebook first had people skipping lunch breaks to update their status and tag party photos.
Now the phenomenon seems to have gone beyond the PC and phone, with a Twitter-enabled digital photo frame promising to bring 140-line Tweets into our living rooms, offices, and kitchens.
