Mercedes Is Making a Tweet-Controlled Car?

There are many things that just shouldn’t be on Twitter. Your plants, your lawnmower, any fan of teen pop acts, and, above all, your car. Mercedes Benz couldn’t disagree more, especially with that last one.

For reasons that consist of “Because it’s really, really cool”, Mercedes has apparently created a prototype control system for your car that relies on Twitter. And we’re not talking some cutesy “turn on the lights and unlock the car” commands. We’re talking actual, honest to God driving.

Oh, yeah, this’ll end well. The future of trolling, on the next slide.
