An Alarm Clock App That Sends An Embarrassing Tweet Every Time You Hit Snooze

You could make the argument that, on the whole, the Japanese are more disciplined than we are. Part of that might be because they impose harsh consequences on failure. For example, who else would come up with an alarm clock app that sends out embarrassing tweets whenever you hit the snooze button?

OKITE is that app, and whenever you hit snooze, it will pick a random, strange, embarrassing tweet to all your followers. We’ve covered various alarm clocks with punishment for snooze before, but those have leaned more towards physical punishment than psychological. Though, because these phrases are in Japanese, most of your followers will wonder what’s going on with you unless they add an option to put in your own custom text. Still, it’s a good idea.
