It's a plane... It's bird... It's your Amazon package?

Amazon is developing a drone-based delivery program that would be able to deliver packages to your door within 30 minutes of ordering them. 

Amazon's founder and CEO Jeff Bezos announced "Prime Air" on CBS' "60 Minutes" Sunday night. Bezos believes the "octocopters" are just four to five years away from being ready to hit the air.

The Internet has reacted with awe and skepticism since the company's announcement. 

Before the CBS interview had even finished airing, a new Twitter account named Amazon Drone surfaced. The account pokes fun at the idea of small robotic helicopters delivering packages to your front door.

Amazon drones won't leave those yellow notes on your door. We're programmed to catapult your order through the window. Answer next time.
