    Introducing the #MWEBTweetSeat

    The #MWEBTweetSeat allows someone watching TV to automatically send a pre-programmed tweet to comment on whatever they're watching without having to take their eyes off the screen. The user simply needs to log in to the couch with their Twitter details, pick a cushion with the right sentiment for their emotion, and throw it in the air. A tweet is then sent automatically.

    It's easy to re-programme the tweets for any series season finale or other big TV events. The #MWEBTweetSeat is currently programmed to send soccer-related tweets, and if your team happens to win, you just need to activate what we're calling "Cruise Control" by jumping up and down on the couch.

    The #MWEBTweetSeat is part of an ongoing project to explore how the web and WiFi access is transforming our experience of public spaces and social connections.
