Fandomestic: 10 Twitter-Inspired Creations
Twitter has been around for a few years, but in the past several months it’s grown to become the hot social networking tool. And, especially with the adorable Twitter bird mascot and the error page icon Fail Whale, it should be no surprise that some avid fans have brought their love of Twitter into other parts of their lives. Here are ten, from the most casual of tributes to the most permanent.
