Looking for ways to tweet? Mount a coffee cup to your car roof…

I don’t know about you, but when I see a clever usage of Twitter whether it’s a tweeting beer keg or a tweeting cat, I find myself smiling and realizing the overall joys in life are small, nerdy, and just plain innovative. Innovative isn’t what some would call “GitEmSteveDave’s” crazy Coffee-on-a-car contraption with other honorable mentions being “dumb”, “stupid”, “retarded”, etc. I have a sense of humor and practice using it every day. It appears Steve has one too as the picture above shows his hobby — finding ways to tweet about things. And so the “RoofCoffeeCup” was born.

The gist is straightforward. He took a simple coffee cup and used two powerful magnets (pacemaker users beware!) to keep the cup from sliding, falling, or rolling off of his roof. See, easy as pie (never did quite understand that). After the painless install, he simply drives around and watches peoples’ reactions and tweets them accordingly. So far he’s had 13 honks, 5 along side riders, 4 double takes, 3 points, 3 stoplight tells, 2 laughs, 2 mimes, 1 flash, 1 wave, and 1 cute girl taking his picture.

Might I add that last one is reason enough to mount a paper cup to your roof… If you find his idea inspiring and would like to try it out for yourself, make sure to tweet all incidences and reactions on Twitter with the #RoofCoffeeCup hash tag.
