Grounded teen evades device confiscation by tweeting from the smart-fridge

Dorothy is an (alleged) 15-year-old who has attained Twitter fame by hopping from device to device as her mother finds and confiscates her tools: first her phone, then her Nintendo, then her Wii U, and finally, her family smart fridge.

She's using the hashtag #FreeDorothy, and periodically her accounts have been taken over by her mother, who took the opportunity to scold her for her disobedience.

After sending a tweet saying her mom had taken her phone, another tweet was published, seemingly from her mother, stating: “I seen [sic] that Dorothy has been using twitter on her Nintendo. This account will be shut down now.”

Dorothy then sent a tweet saying: “my mom took my phone and my nintendo ds so i have no choice but to use my wii … thank u all for the support and love.” The tweet’s source label, which indicates the device from which a tweet was sent, confirmed that the tweet came from a Wii U.

Finally, after her mother apparently took her Wii U away as well, she sent a tweet from her LG Smart refrigerator: “I’m talking to my fridge what the heck,” she said.
