Tweeting beyond the grave

Forget the "there can be only one" tag of the movie Highlander -- one web firm is offering us all the chance to be immortal.

The Telegraph reports that LivesOn is a website that claims to be able to continue posting to your Twitter account after you die. The application relies on an algorithm to mimic your style of writing, and even stops posting between the hours of 10 pm and 7 am much like you would when alive.

However, early experiences of the site -- which was due to launch to the public last September -- have been mixed, with commentators noting the service falls short on grammar and context on several occasions.

That's before you get into the debate on whether you want to live forever via Twitter.
