The tamagotchi of Web 2.0

Celly is my tamagotchi

So there were a couple of announcements from Twitter today (like status permalinks), and one half-mentioned Celly — the cutest and most social thing to come out of Web 2.0 leveraging a newly minted API.

As Tara likes to say, “Ev Williams is my Tamagotchi!”

Well, now the whole Twitter community can be your Tamagotchi with Celly.app.

Download it direct or grab the source.

This is just another neat WebKit app made possible by the work of Josh Peek, Chip Cuccio and others.

    does this mean you have to water Tara and feed her just like the original Tomadachi game?

    Well, instead of water, I have to provide her Blue Bottle Coffee and wine. ;)
