Are You Ready for Twitter Radio? New app reads your social stream to you

An Argentinian startup has launched The Social Radio for Twitter, a free Android app that, according to the company, reads tweets to you—in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, German and more—creating "a human-friendly audio experience … mixed with the music you love." (What if you love Lionel Richie? Not so human-friendly for others in earshot, right?) You can filter your Twitter stream via hashtags, lists, trending topics and such, and choose the interval to check for tweets (music fills the empty spaces). This might appeal to folks who feel they need to be connected while driving (keep your hands on the wheel!) or jogging (watch out for that tree!). Still, I wonder: Isn't postmodern existence noisy enough? Do we really want to jam our brains with more information, saturate our nervous systems with nonstop streams of multimedia input? In our tech-crazed culture, the answer is, of course, yes! Do they have one of these apps for Pinterest yet? What's the delay? I've got "Stuck on You" cued up! Via PSFK.
