Perfect. And here I was thinking Twitter was useless.
Last year Bill Gates announced plans to revolutionize the toilet. Now one startup is attempting to revolutionize toilet paper -– by putting tweets on it.
The service, called Shitter, will take one or more feeds from your Twitter account and print those tweets on toilet paper you can then display and use proudly in your favorite restroom.
The company’s tagline: “Social Media has never been so disposable.”
Shitter allows you to have a roll printed with your own personal tweets, your timeline, favorites, or tweets from a specific list you’ve created or follow on Twitter. If there’s someone on Twitter you think has particularly crappy things to say, you can opt to have his or her feed printed on a few rolls.
Priced for use in high-end powder rooms, Shitter rolls are priced at $35 for a pack of four. That, you may reasonably surmise, is money down the drain. Mashable did the math, and if Shitter’s rolls of TP have the standard 75 sheets you’d be shelling out about 8.5 cents a sheet to drop your latest tweets off at the pool.
