This Candy-Dispensing Twitter Bot Will Reward You For Your Retweets

Getting a retweet makes you feel good, doesn’t it? It’s nice to know that your content was deemed worthy to be shared by others, and that it spread farther than your 100 or 1000 followers.

But what if there was another way to reward yourself for a retweet, beyond a little self-congratulation? And what if it was candy coated? Intrigued? Read on for more information on how you can get your hands on a sweet-dispensing Twitter bot.

Molly isn’t your typical bot. She’s not trying to sell you an iPad based on the keywords you use, and she’s not getting you to click on malware links. No, Molly is not a virtual bot at all, and she’s certainly not malicious.

Molly is a physical robot that rewards you with candy whenever you reach a certain number of retweets. She’s a crisp white box, and she’ll make you smile every time your tweets are amplified.

Molly attaches to your computer via USB, and dispenses a colorful candy whenever you reach a certain thresholds of retweets. You can set this number yourself using the simple app that comes with the little candy robot.

Molly and her brother Olly – who releases smells whenever you get a user-defined social media notification – raised some money on Kickstarter last week, and – despite the fact that they didn’t reach their goal – the two have found a home at OllyFactory.com. Their creator is confident that he will continue to make Ollys and Mollys in his own way, so stay tuned to this space and go ahead and contact him if you’re interested in your very own Molly.
