10 ways you can show off your favorite tweets in the real world
Every once in a while a tweet so damn good comes along that it makes me think that maybe, just maybe, all the bad the internet has given us has been worth it.
It's rare for a tweet to spark so much joy that the "like" and "retweet" buttons don't do it justice. But whenever it happens I feel compelled to take some sort of action.
I've always been a fan of screenshotting extra special tweets to ensure I remember them long after they pass through my timeline, but these days there are far more charming, thoughtful, and highly amusing ways to immortalize a favorite tweet.
Maybe you've had a tweet go viral or get some celebrity love? Perhaps you've tweeted something that became a hilarious inside joke with your friends? Or you're considering taking the plunge and wiping your Twitter clean, but you're holding back because of one or two really great tweets that you're not ready to let go of just yet? Then making Twitter-inspired merch might be for you.
Immortalizing tweets — whether they're your own, a friend's, a celebrity's, or even... a brand's — is a perfect way to make lasting memories. Not to mention, personalized Twitter merch can be a next-level gift.
So next time you find a tweet worth memorializing, here are 10 incredibly fun, borderline unhinged ways to make it last forever.
1. Frame a tweet
For the perfect balance of simple and extra as hell, print a tweet out and put it in a legit frame. It might not sound like a particularly grand gesture, but my cousin gave me a framed collage of some of my favorite tweets for Christmas, and I'm slightly embarrassed to admit it's one of the best gifts I've ever received.
Framed Tweets is a professional tweet-framing service that does all the work for you — though frames and posters cost between $49 to $199, which is a bit pricey if you ask me. If you want to go cheaper, buy an old frame and print out your own tweet. If you really want to get fancy, you can even use photo paper.
2. Wear a tweet
Retweets might not equal endorsements, but tweet shirts certainly do. What better way to show the world you love a tweet than by wearing it?
You can get tweets printed on all manner of apparel — shirts, sweatshirts, hats, tote bags, and more — on websites like Tee Tweets, Etsy, and Redbubble. For even more options, use a printing service like Custom Ink.
3. Make tweet stickers
If you're looking for an easy way to display a tweet on the many surfaces in your life, why not consider making stickers? They're fun, temporary, and easily sharable. Redbubble offers a selection of standout celebrity tweet stickers, though you can always make your own.
4. Put it on a pillow
If you're in the mood to have some ~tweet dreams~ why not order a custom-made Twitter pillow? Etsy has a selection of classic and more artistic options, Redbubble offers quite the choice of throw pillows and covers, and Framed Tweets also has all your customization needs covered.
5. Enjoy a piping hot cup of tweet
To wake yourself up before you spend the day scrolling through Twitter, we suggest drinking coffee out of a Twitter-themed mug. TweetMugz.com is available for all your celeb, political, brand, and custom tweet mug needs.
6. Order a delicious tweet cake
People put photos on cakes, so why not tweets? I'm sure bakeries have received their fair share of odd requests over the years, so you should feel no shame in sending a photo of a tweet for them to put atop your cake.
7. Carve a tweet into wood
If you're in the market for a slightly classier social media-inspired gift, turn your attention to these Twitter wood carvings.
Laser Tweets etches your tweet onto a beautifully smooth and thin piece of wood for $25. For and even makes a set of custom wooden coasters for $55.00. It's like, we really don't need them but also we kind of absolutely do?
8. New phone case who dis?
Want the world to see a tweet of your choosing but not quite ready for a tweet shirt? Start smaller with a tweet phone case. Redbubble has a small selection of pre-made cases featuring popular tweets for a variety of different phones, and you can also create custom ones online.
9. Try temporary tweet tattoos
Ever love a tweet so much you briefly consider getting a tattoo of it before deciding it's probably not the best idea? Same. But TwitterTats gives us the best of both worlds.
TwitterTats lets you create temporary tattoos of your favorite tweets that come off of your skin in about three days. Now you can seem adventurous without having to embrace the huge commitment of a real tattoo. Pre-made celebrity packs are available for $9.99 each, or you can create a custom temporary tattoos for $25.00.
10. Get a real Twitter tattoo
If you're a Twitter-loving daredevil you always technically have the option of getting a real tattoo of a tweet. But before you head over to your nearest tattoo artist, remember that not all tweets stand the test of time. And this is one tweet you won't be able to delete. So think before you ink.
