1980's style tweeting looks cool but it's time consuming

Here we have the Tweephone, an analog Twitter client that works using a rotary dial. Why? I don’t know but I do know that it does look interesting.

The Tweephone, which was designed and created by the UP digital Bureau and Unteleported tech agency, uses Arduino technology to decipher letters from the number dialled. It works on the same premise as a touch tone phone keypad, so, for example, you’d have to dial ‘7’ 4 times to get the letter ‘S’.
I can imagine the novelty of using this device would wear of pretty quickly. 
I get miffed at having to spend an extra few seconds clicking back through my 140 character tweets on my laptop if there are any mistakes. With the Tweephone you’d be stuck for weeks if you got to the end and realised you’d made a mistake. 
Here is a riveting video of the Tweephone in action, just count yourselves lucky that they aren’t tweeting ‘supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’, you’d still be sat watching at 4am on Friday morning if they did.
