what if: you could tweet something useful, not just interesting

This is cool.

BakerTweet is a new way for bakers to tell the world that something hot and fresh has just come out of the oven.

It’s basically a radio-size, bakery-proof box that sends messages wirelessly to Twitter, so  followers get a Twitter alert to tell them that their croissant / Danish / rye cob / sourdough is ready.

The first BakerTweet device has been installed in the Albion Cafe in Shoreditch, London.

It got me thinking. What are other contexts in which time is of the essence, in which Twitter could actually be usefully put to work?

Tradesman who tweet when they’re actually in the area?

Traffic reports?

Organ donation?
