TweetPee app alerts parents when baby is wet

It seems everyone is using Twitter these days. And now, even your baby's diaper is tweeting.

Well, technically it's not the diaper, but a sensor clipped to the diaper. And it's probably not your baby's diaper because the new TweetPee app causing buzz this week is being tested only in Brazil. Huggies Brazil plans to launch the app in July.

Here's how it works: The parent attaches a little owl-shaped sensor to the baby's diaper. When the baby pees, the sensor detects a change in humidity and sends a tweet to the parents saying baby is wet.

According to this NBC News report, it's not clear whether the app will be made available in the U.S. But Adweek is reporting that it will not be available for purchase (after joking that a TweetPoop app would probably be more useful).

What do you think of the app? Would you use it?
