Not only is a twittering remote not a new design, its something that few will ever want to use. Sadly, its just as easy to think of an unoriginal patent that people would actually use.
"An electronic device used to connect to a blogging service to deliver updates as a result of user input or the device's state due to external observations."
Could be a remote, could be a mobile phone, or even a computer. Let's patent "microblog service provider"!
