A 15 year-old teenager has become a #hashtag hero after she tweeted from a smart fridge when her mother confiscated her phone.

The teenager known only as Dorothy wound up grounded and without her phone after absent-mindedly setting fire to the kitchen while she was supposed to be cooking.

She started tweeting from unlikely devices, including a Nintendo DS and from a Wii console. Eventually she resorted to her smart fridge.

She tweeted: "I do not know if this is going to tweet I am talking to my fridge what the heck my Mom confiscated all of my electronics again."

The tweet showed up as coming from an "LG smart refrigerator".

It won her thousands of retweets and tens of thousands of likes and has even inspired a hashtag of #freedorothy.

Even LG tweeted the hashtag, while Twitter declared her "an icon”.

I look forward to the fridge itself entering the conversation. "Why do you keep ignoring the blueberries? Is this some kind of experiment in growing mold?" "Hey, you're supposed to bury dead pets, not store them in the freezer!"
