Teen tweets from smart fridge after mom takes her phone
TWITTERSPHERE — It's not often there's a story that combines amazing ingenuity AND possibly a sign of the end of days.
According to New York Magazine, a 15-year-old Ariana Grande super fan from Kentucky named Dorothy went to some hilarious lengths just so she could tweet.
The Guardian reports she was forced to MacGuyver some ways to reach her thousands of followers by using a handheld Nintendo device, a Wii U gaming console and then by far the coolest one—an LG Smart fridge.
Dorothy told New York Magazine it all started when her mom confiscated her phone after she was boiling some rice and watching YouTube on her phone when the stove caught fire.
After the wheels got going, she started coming up with increasingly clever ways to daisy-chain systems not originally designed for tweeting.
First she was able to use her Nintendo 3DS handheld to reach the twittersphere, until mom quickly put an end to that.
Not to be deterred, Dorothy then hopped on her Nintendo Wii U video-game console to fire off some more tweets.
Her mom eventually took away all her electronic devices—all that is except the family's smart LG fridge.
Dorothy told New York Magazine her mom now plans to have the fridge removed.
After the story went viral, even Twitter joined in the calls for Dorothy to be returned to the Twitterverse, tweeting #FreeDorothy.
Imagine if all that energy went into reading books.
