This information is sent via blooetooth to a mobile phone that makes the postings on Twitter.” (Yes, that’s how they spelled it.)
Huffington Post says “The sneakers are intended to criticize the “massive amount of useless information that is spread over (Twitter)” by “posting literally every step you take in real life.”
Well, they got that part right.
