Paper Tweets, Handly Like A Paper Calculator

Reading the headline there’s few surprises here for those bothered to read on.

Someone has invented the Paper Tweet.

You know those notepads that every office buys in the hope that phone messages will be taken more efficiently that no one ever, ever uses?

Well, now there’s another kind that no one will ever use as the makers intended.

The note takes all the features of Twitter, and removes every single ounce of usefulness from each and every one of them.

You can direct message someone, or simply tweet. Which predictably in paper format become the same thing.

In offices all around North America, childish nerdy people will waste thousands of man hours on this, and trees everywhere will wait in anguish for the trend to pass.

Wow, what a waste of paper. Reminds me of the Google search by mail thing.

I’m pretty sure all the trees at the tree farm won’t mind. At least we can grow more trees. I stopped caring about “wasting” paper years ago, because it is biodegradable, and easily recyclable. I would only be concerned if these were made out of plastic.

Don’t be such haters. I think it’s a cute idea. There are more worthless things being printed on paper.

Sir, I think you’ve missed the point entirely. Don’t you think the makers of this notepad might be poking fun at Twitter? Or something. In terms of the “usefulness” of Twitter, well, that’s a topic for another thread altogether, don’t you think?
