Twitter Teases Upcoming Helmet On ‘Good Morning America’


Twitter is joining other social networks in the April Fool’s Day fun, and today teased its exclusive “Twitter Helmet” on Good Morning America.

ABC News correspondent Sara Haines wore the retrofitted helmet complete with the iconic bird logo, and here’s what it looked like:

From the official Twitter blog:

“Today we’re pleased to pre-announce the Twitter Helmet™, a sophisticated, fully immersive, staggeringly high-resolution wearable device that allows our users to interact with the world around them entirely via a custom aviary interface.”

The next-gen wearable is made out of impact resistant glass, and in order to tweet, users simply have to “peck.”

Hashtag #GMATwitterHelmet was created for viewers to share their thoughts this morning, and here’s what they had to say:

To be expected, some Twitter users didn’t get the whole joke:

Twitter says the helmet will launch in September, costing $139.99, and customers can purchase accessories such as a custom leather case, Wi-Fi or 3G/4G signal boosters in the shape of a feather, and a chinstrap made of carbon fiber to keep things light.
