Twitter on Ford Cars

Ford Motor Co. announced technology to let computers read their Twitter feeds to them while behind the wheel.

There is enough distraction already from within the car or outside. Mobile phone is definitely one big cause. Every improvement in the cell phone technology (=higher distraction ) results in higher the risk  while driving.

If car manufacturers are going to play a catalytic role by supporting these distractions, are they not diluting one of their fundamental responsibility ( towards safety) ?

Food for thought !
