What if your Twitter feed could carry on even after you die? An R&D project from Queen Mary University in London and agency Lean Mean Fighting Machine could make this idea a reality. The technology (which hasn't actually launched yet) would analyze the dead person's tweets and set up a new feed in which they "live on" by reacting to events on Twitter in the way would they would have done while alive.
