Tweets from drones, eh!

Could be interesting and makes the selfie stick rather inadequate.

Most likely it's protecting the ability for someone else to do that, which I would have thought was relatively easy.

Twitter may be the latest tech giant interested in unmanned aerial vehicles — but not for delivery. The company has applied for a patent, which became available last week, for a drone capable of taking photos and videos and transmitting them through users' Twitter accounts. Of course, applying for the patent doesn’t necessarily mean Twitter plans on building a drone. However, it could be laying a foundation for a Twitter-controlled UAV.

For instance, Twitter mentions a way to use likes, retweets, and replies to control the drone's direction or what it ends up recording or photographing. Twitter Patent Application For Tweets From Drones [theverge.com]

Talk about making yourself relevant in an industry you aren't yet involved in!

Looking at their valuation, which has dropped yet again, sounds like smoke and mirrors. Anything to avoid the latest outcry regarding bias and censorship on the platform (political so don't look if you are offended: [breitbart.com...] ) If you are a stock holder get ready for a bumpy ride.

Drones are not going to save this company.

Never been a fan of twitter. Tweeting one liners seems a bit odd to me.

Although we invested in drones, training & pilot licenses plus unmanned waivers for the drones. So will watch this ball bouncing until it doesn't.
