An innovative app allows social media users to experience their tweets being spoken by a mountain.

Goo Technologies' new app 'Mountains of Mouthness' features 3D animated mountains that will recite tweets from people who use the hashtag #Mouthness.

This concept is actually based on a fairytale, in which two mountains in love find themselves separated by a village and have to talk to each other from afar.

Creative Director Magnus Östergren said: “we’re aiming to build the most artist friendly tool for advanced interactive web graphics out there.”

Watch a demonstration of the app here and tweet #mouthness or @MoMouthness to have your message spoken by a cartoon mountain.
