Metal Gear Twitter App Allows Stealthy Tweeting

Metal Gear TW for iOS will combine espionage with social networking later this year.

Have you ever wished there was more espionage involved in social media? If so, you're not alone. Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima's studio is working on an app that will add stealth and camouflage modes to your Twitter account. Called Metal Gear TW, the app will give users more control over who can see what parts of their updates.

Metal Gear TW's "camouflage mode" allows users to censor parts of tweets, ensuring that only designated people can access them. The app also has a stealth mode, which lets people block or ignore others--without them finding out. While Twitter already has built-in private accounts and block functions, Metal Gear TW's features actually sound pretty practical if you only want to hide some of your content from the general public, not all of it.

Metal Gear TW will be released on iOS by the end of 2012, though it's unclear if that means Japan only or worldwide.
