Teen apparently tweets from smart fridge after mom bans electronics

Tech-deprived teen cant handle the hell of a phone-less world uses refrigerator to Tweet Looking for digital salvation
Lora Ball | 16 August, 2019, 14:54

Dorothy claimed her phone was confiscated, prompting her to send tweets labelled as coming from her Nintendo Wii U, her Nintendo 3DS, and, finally, the family fridge.

As a result of the hilarious event Dorothy has now reached Twitter fame with her following jumping from 500 to 33,000 in just 12 days.

Fast-forward a technology-free fortnight, and when Dorothy's mom left the house, she was ready to experiment.

When her mother leaves for work, Dorothy goes on the prowl for her phone. On Aug. 5, she tweeted from her Wii U - thanking everyone for their support in her quest to tweet, no matter the consequences.

After sending a tweet saying her mom had taken her phone, another tweet was published, seemingly from her mother, stating: "I seen [sic] that Dorothy has been using twitter on her Nintendo".

Dorothy's account, @thankunext327, mainly functions as an Ariana Grande fan page. The tweets sent from Wii U and Nintendo seemed genuine, he added.

This would included a Mii avatar she made and the words: 'Hey guys omg.

How did Dave get here? Chappelle won his first Emmy in 2017 for his debut episode on Saturday Night Live . Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will award Chappelle with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

This tweet was sent from her Nintendo 3DS, but she was found out again by her mum, who composed the next tweet for her.

This last one really set people off, with hundreds of people replying with delighted reactions, laughing and praising her 'dedication'.

In messages to NY magazine, Dorothy's account said the confiscation came after she "was boiling rice and was too busy on phone and stove burst into flames". Dorothy said: "She was mad I went behind her back after she took my phone and she then threatened to delete my twitter but she didn't know how". "I felt mortified! I was anxious because I've been bored all summer and Twitter passes the time for me", Dorothy said.

She conducted the CBS interview with an iPod, and she doesn't know when she will get her phone back.

Unfortunately, her mother has discovered what she has been up to, and is now threatening to get rid of their fridge, since she can't figure out how to disconnect it from the internet. But she tried to explain the story as best as she could.

While there has been some speculation among commenters that the entire viral saga was fabricated, she may have still tweeted from the various devices.
