The first pregnancy-test that saves you the trouble of sharing the results with your intimates... simply enter your twitter account information into the wireless "wand" and then pee on the end of it as directed, and 5 minutes later, you and everyone you know will know if you're knocked up!

       //and suddenly you are unfriended by 50% of your contacts!//.....you mean you have sex with 50% of your contacts?

       Well it would be immoral to have sex with both of them, wouldn't it!

       Is this a thing, letting people know you are pregnant from the moment that your test comes up positive? I thought best practice was to wait until 12 weeks after yr last period, once you are out of the miscarriage danger zone.   

       Anyway, once we get into a broader range of retail home diagnostic products ("Simply defecate in the handy machinewashable bag and the seventeen computer processors will assess your stool for signs of gluten intolerance, Bell's Palsy, autism and bees"), then this principle can be widened out to full social media dissemination of all your mechanically-, rather than self-, diagnosed ailments.

       Sounds fab. You could set up automated response tweets as well, so that you can be the first to respond to your friends good news. "Congratulations on your positive test for bowel cancer!".

       Come to think of it, in the right hat my child does somewhat resemble Elmer Fudd...

       I'm already far to aware of the most mundane and profound matters of complete strangers thankyouverymuch. This would be a convenience to me only in that I would know to never have any contact with you again.

       You wouldn't want to pick up the wrong box in the store.

       No, I would cut off contact if my "friend" made me privy to such a fact without first considering if I was even interested. After all, false positives are very common in the stick style pregnancy test. Furthermore until more is known it is not news that we "tweet" for we might bring false hope to those who care, and disgust to those who do not.

       There's an "I'd poke that" pun in there somewhere.
