Huggies TweetPee: Cool Gadget For Geeky Parents?
Huggies Brazil is helping geeky parents with a cool gadget: TweetPee, a sensor and Twitter-based alert that reminds parents to change baby’s diapers.
Technology is enabling us to do more good?
Well, some brands are definitely ready to help, not hype.
Huggies TweetPee: a Sensor & Twitter alert?
TweePee sensor is attached to the baby’s diaper. When the sensor perceives an increase of humidity, it sends a tweet out to the parent’s Twitter account to let them know their baby needs their attention.

Big-data and Mobile Diaper Commerce?
Now even smarter is that the tweet is also connected to a mobile app that keeps track of number of diapers used. This enables the parents to order new diapers, way before they are all wet. Always on, or should I call it: “always in stock”?
So what might seem like a geeky gadget to the linear minds, might look like big-data driven mobile commerce to the non-linear minds among you?
Very clever helping by Huggies and Ogilvy Brazil. Almost Nike Running alike.
Is it big-data or just small data? I don’t know, but does that really matter? I like TweetPee because it is a clever and relevant way for parents that need it.
It’s spot on innovative digital branding by Huggies, earning them global attention and buzz. And probably a lot of kudos from influencers within the marketing and tech industry.
Luckily Twitter is a clever little blue bird, not the yellow Big Bird from Sesame Street.
How would that big beast fit a diaper?!
