Picture of Twittering office toilet
The twittering office toilet tweets the times and types of use of the toilet in the office. Want to know too much about the habits of your coworkers and share it with the internets? Here you go.

Many thanks to randofo and his twittering office chair from which some, or almost all, of this was based.

Or if you just want to see the tweets, go here:

Step 1: What's to report?

So what can be tweeted from a toilet? There's the flush, but that's been done before and it only tells you that someone went to the loo. Big whup.

The other information that we can get is from the toilet paper usage. Available data from here is the # of times it was used in a session and the total # of squares used in a session. From this we can get a pretty good idea of what happened.

All right, so how to get the data? Magnets, baby.
This is hilarious!

On this table vertically is the number of toilet paper squares used but what are the numbers horizontally?
It is the number of times some one got a peice of tp (wipes)

 I would actually be very interested in seeing the python code, and such.

what I want to do, is re-code the twitter part, to Google Voice-- and change it from detecting the toilet use, to my door.  This way when someone enters my house, I get a text message. 

Possibly use it to detect knocks / doorbell usage as well.

If toilets are your thing, I've got a toilet-humour topic you'd be welcome to contribute to.
