Tweets printed on toilet roll in new ‘Shitter’ service

The creative director at Profero Sydney has invented a service that allows people to print out their Twitter feed on rolls of toilet paper.

Called Shitter, the app – which is the brainchild of Matt Delprado and his former Profero colleague David Gillespie – takes one or more feeds from a Twitter account and turns it into four rolls of toilet paper.

Delprado said: “Over a pub lunch one of us went to the toilet and forgot our phone. After whinging about this new form of first world problem for a while we realised we’d stumbled across a shitty idea that we just had to turn into reality.”
The service launched last night, and has already gained traction on site such as Mashable and Laughingsquid.

    Unless we’re talking a simultaneous evolution of an idea…afterwards…

  6. Really hope its a premature April Fools Day prank. There may be an abundance of digital agency toilets across Australia who’d be keen on the idea, before it dies in the ass, but it does seem an irresponsible waste of energy to produce nonetheless.

  12. We’re very proud of our CD’s involvement in this project, but to be clear, this is the work of Collectors Edition, a global team who make cool stuff. Well done to Matt, David, Ian and Johny!
