Coffee with the @HTCoffeeMachine

We’re not entirely sure how to begin to explain this rather perplexing, but also endearing, occurence. But our Delhi office coffee machine decided to join Twitter last week.

No, really, he goes by the handle @HTCoffeeMachine. This is no ordinary contraption, mind you. Until recently, he was the most abused – and used – appliance in the newsroom. After the printer, of course (but that’s another story).

Now, however, he is our hero. Within a week of his existence, he had 500 followers, which is kind of a big deal when you realise that this is, after all, an inanimate object.

So we decided to interview the celebrity of the week (why a room full of journalists didn’t think of this first, we know not).

Perhaps because he is rather high maintenance? He wanted to be on the


cover. And he wanted to be styled for a shoot. And agreed to an email interview only after a conversation with his PR team. (He has fans now, you see).

You’re going to love this, because really, he’s super smart and witty.
