A new application will soon allow users to keep posting Twitter updates from beyond the grave, independently using intricate knowledge of your online character to create a virtual continuation of your personality after you die.

­“When your heart stops beating, you'll keep tweeting,” says the new application’s tagline.

‘LivesOn’ will let users pursue ‘life after death’ on their social media profiles, letting the deceased communicate with loved ones. LivesOn will keep posting after you kick the bucket, following the example of the DeadSocial platform.

Due to be launched in March, the LivesOn application will keep tweeting after you pass on. The service will utilize advanced analysis of your main Twitter feed, to carefully select appropriate subjects, likes, or articles that would have been likely to interest you, posting them on your behalf for your friends to read.

When this generation dies, they can tweet back on what's on the other side.

Art will have lots to read...

Actually, two of my "followers" on Twitter are deceased.

NO, REALLY, I'M NOT PARANOID OR HALLUCINATING! DEAD PEOPLE FOLLOW ME AROUND!

(I daresay it's just that their families haven't closed their accounts.)

So, maybe I'll hear from them again soon. That would be nice.

Bill
