Confirmed: Twitter officially coming to OnStar


Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Internet, Transportation, Videos


After speaking with an rep, we can now undoubtedly tell you that Twitter is most definitely coming to GM’s OnStar service. I was actually featured in a piece here on Seattle’s KING 5 News, where I talked a bit about the features that OnStar is saying will be available. On the flip-side, they also talk to a Washington State Patrol officer, who says that even though this would be a hands-free activity, it is just one more thing that is taking your mind off of driving.

OnStar didn’t give us a timeframe for when the Twitter integration would launch, but hey, at least now you know that our original Twitter on OnStar article wasn’t an April Fools joke…although, Trooper Brandon Lee’s bow tie very well might be.

As always, you can follow Gear Live on Twitter.

I guess it’s a little bit of everything. It’s cool, it’s definitely got some dangerous value, and truly, is it necessary? I like the usefulness of the idea, but I do believe it will be another distraction for drivers who are already fairly distracted anyway.

For some reason I hate twitter and all the hype that comes with it really bothers me.

Next we will hear about people wrecking their OnStar vehicle because they were checking their friends latest twitter or something.

Even the media is pushing twitter.  I guess it is alright & is a different networking tool, but I just dont get it.

I probably never will get twitter :(
