Soon you’ll be able to tweet from the afterlife


Have you made any plans for your social media afterlife yet? With the soon-to-launch LivesOn app, even “when your heart stops beating, you’ll keep tweeting”.

An experimental project by ad agency executive Dave Bedwood in partnership with Queen Mary University in England, the artificial intelligence app will function as your “digital twin” ? after learning your tweeting habits while you’re still alive, it will generate and send out similar tweets in your name after you’re gone.

LivesOn is set to launch later this month and will be free for download.
