IT Consultant Nat Morris has invented a device that allows his dog to be fed through twitter.

He appeared on Daybreak this morning to explain how it works.

You can send a tweet through @FeedToby and the high tech device delivers the treat to Toby the pooch.

Unfortunately Nat has had to disable the ingenious device to the public to preserve Toby's health.

@fatfingers we've had to disable public feedings, before we woke up over 4,500 people had tried to feed him!
