Twitter's ambitious plan: Applies for patent to create drone controlled by tweets!

Washington: Micro-blogging site has an ambitious concept in mind! The company has reportedly applied for a patent for a tweet-controlled drone that will be capable of taking photos, shoot videos and transmit them through users' Twitter accounts.

Twitter may not necessarily be planning to build a drone, it could be laying a foundation for a Twitter-controlled UAV.

Twitter mentions a way to use likes, retweets, and replies to control the drone's direction or what it ends up recording or photographing. It also mentions tele-presence and live video interview capabilities.

Twitter has already launched the live-streaming app Periscope. That leaves open the possibility it could use the app in tandem with high-flying drones to capture and broadcast events through its platform.
