Hans Scharler glued a switch to the outside of his toaster that detects when the slider is down and the toaster is on, or when it's up and finished toasting -- and connected in to the Internet to automatically tweet "Toasting" and "Done Toasting," boston.com reported Friday.

All he needed was a terminal board, a resistor and some alligator clips, Scharler said.

Scharler set up an event widget that monitors input from his contraption and sends alerts to his Twitter email address when the digital input from his toaster modification was high -- toasting -- and low -- done toasting.

Scharler's "Twitter toast" account has more than 2,000 followers.
