A little bird told me TwitterPeek is available through Amazon in the US. (Amazon.com)

Never has a brand been so popular that it makes us proud to represent bird sounds; that and lazily accepting being called a ‘twit'.

I'm on Twitter too but I wouldn't say I'm addicted (yet). When forced to justify my penchant for tweeting, I focus on its benefits - it makes collaboration a whole lot easier and is a great way to find out the latest news and trends, which is useful when in the media industry.

But when I heard there was a Twitter-only device available in the States (on Twitter no less!), my initial reaction was well...not really something I can type out here.

When you have enough smartphones around to give you the required measure of virtual adrenaline, why would you want to spend nearly $200 for one that's restricted just one social media service? Even one for just Facebook is ludicrous...but there must be a market out there because the TwitterPeek is listed on Amazon, proudly proclaiming that it's the "world's first Twitter mobile device."

TwitterPeek comes with 6 months of service for $99.95 but for a hundred Ds more you can get it with a lifetime service, though the device itself only comes with a one-year warranty. And a chirpy Aqua colour. Tweet it loud.
