Twitter Announces Launch of Twttr, a Vowel Free Twitter
Posted on April 1, 2013
Twitter has announced the launch of a Twttr, a vowel-free version of Twitter and plans to start charging for the regular (now premium) Twitter. The image above shows a Twttr version of President Obama's most-retweeted "Four More Years" tweet.
You can easily make vowel-free tweets here.Starting today, we are shifting to a two-tiered service: Everyone can use our basic service, Twttr, but you only get consonants. For five dollars a month, you can use our premium "Twitter" service which also includes vowels.
We're doing this because we believe that by eliminating vowels, we'll encourage a more efficient and "dense" form of communication.
The one feature we wish was an April Fool's joke from Twitter is the line breaks feature, which just leads to spammy looking tweets in the timeline.
