Twitter is not just for people anymore. BakerTweet, designed by Poke London, lists their bakery goods when they come out of oven.

Installed in the Albion Cafe in London, it already has a following of over 300 customers. It’s easy to understand why when you read one of their descriptions:
“Rocks of buttery, raisiny joy, freshly risen scones to slather with cream and jam - just being set out now.”
