Twitter, App Transfers Tweets Onto Toilet Paper: Start-up Idea
Tweets from me to loo
By Michelle Hammond
An app launched last month transfers tweets from a user’s Twitter profile and prints them on toilet roles.
Twitter is synched via the app, with consumers able to choose whether they want to wipe the content from their profile or someone else’s to line their tweet-embroidered toilet paper.
The selected tweets are then spread across 40 centimetres of standard ply, with four personalised rolls shipped internationally for about $35.
“So far it seems [people are buying it] for private jokes or getting their own feeds printed,” co-founder David Gillespie says.
“The greatest feedback has come from Twitter. Their office in London has got in touch with us, having a giggle. We’re certainly keen to see if the Kardashians start trending, or maybe Justin Bieber.”
This isn’t the first time someone has been inspired by Twitter and launched a spin-off product or service, suggesting there are still plenty of opportunities to cash in on the Twittersphere.
