Twitter is getting in on the selfie fun!

The tech company announced its foray into the hardware business Wednesday morning with the Twelfie Stick™, a "highly sophisticated and first-of-its-kind device."

The Twelfie Stick™ allows for better angles on selfies, and also allows the user to tweet them out directly from the stick itself.

TODAY got its hands on an early prototype, which extends from 10 inches to 3 feet, and uses solar-charging bicarbonate for renewable battery life.
