Every year, we take on a new pet project. Once, we tried our hand at performance art; one of us even did a stint as a front man for a punk rock band (we were called The Insubordinates, it was great).
After experiencing varying degrees of success with escapades into the worlds of tap dancing, Russian literature and documentary filmmaking, we struggled to find a path that we hadn’t yet ventured down. Had we left any waters uncharted? Where could our Millennium Falcon turn next?
Scrolling through social media feeds, distracting our minds for a split second from our summer plans of casual world domination, the idea struck.
An avenue for the momentary genius of general society to live on in fashion history.
Trolling’s moment to seek stardom as an asset to style.
T-shirts with 140 characters or less.
The Tweet Shirt.
The validation tweet ensued. Because, after all, nothing really does exist until someone has tweeted about it, right?:
“Currently seeking developer for a new app that lets you take your favorite tweets and turn them into t-shirts.
Soon after, we graced the interwebs with a few new treats.
The Twitter Handle: @tweetshirtsco
