Post-it Notes are the original Twitter

Because I am a sucker for useful products in pretty packaging. And for clever marketing. And for Post-it notes:

Aren't they darling?

I didn't know this, but apparently the humble Post-it has been celebrating 30 years of keeping it simple. (Man, I even love the slogan!)

To help out, the JMW agency in Stockholm created these "Vintage Twitter" kits (boxes of 500 Post-it notes and a pencil) that were handed out at a conference for web developers in Sweden.


Sometimes we forget that everything old is new again.

The message on the packaging reads:

Vintage Twitter
An original that sticks!
They are twittastic!
We have twittered for 30 years, but in our own way.
