Type Tweets The Old-Fashioned Way
If you're interested in preserving your Twitter updates, one man will type them out for you on an old school typewriter.
Wednesday, May 19, 2010 1:45 GMTNEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Updating your ultra-modern Twitter account can still be done the old-fashioned way.
At least through comedian Patrick Borellis latest project, Typed Tweets.
For $3, Borelli will take a persons Twitter status update and type it up on a manual typewriter, then send it to them via snail mail.
He finds it funny that Twitter users type and create content that only exists on a server and is not actually tangible in a physical sense.
He figured hed make Tweets an actual object that can be given as a gift or hung on a wall.
Says Borelli: Typewriters and hand-typed documents are on the way out, so Im taking something that is very of the moment and bringing it back in time.
Hes hoping major Tweeters like Ashton Kutcher and John Mayer hop on the Typed Tweet bandwagon, and bring a little old-timey charm to the social network.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
