TROY, NY – A company is helping older people write e-mails or post to Twitter – via fax machine!
Celery is a special service that was created to help non-computer users still communicate with their loved ones.
The system allows a person to hand-write a message, then feed it into a fax machine or Celery’s own special machine. The message is sent to a server, where it is transcribed and then transmitted to its final destination: an inbox, Twitter, even Facebook.
The pairing of an antiquated and a state-of-the-art method of communication may seem strange, but grandmas are loving it!
Dorothy Miller is 80 years old, yet she is now tweeting on Twitter!
