Twitter Gets Twee.tt, Not Twe.et, Forgets About Twi.tt Though
If there’s one thing that never gets old, even not after almost 4 years which is more than an eternity online, Ev and Co. continue to provide us with food for the never-ending story of making fun of the name.
Of course I had to dig out the original logo and name
twatter twttr for this occasion and after last year’s Twitter Can’t Get Tweet Because Too Many Tweets Out There, today bring us another winner. Once more Techcrunch brings the story: Twitter has registered the ‘shorturl’ Twee.tt. According to Techcrunch’s Erik Schonfeld plans for the domain have not been disclosed yet:
To be clear, just because it owns the Twee.tt URL doesn’t mean that Twitter is planning on doing anything with it. Twitter owns many domains which it is just sitting on, preventing others from acquiring, or reserving for future use. Twitter also owns twitter.tt and someone applied for twe.tt on March 27, 2010. None of the .tt domains are yet live. [source]
Of course there was no way that I could miss out on this awesome opportunity to make fun of the name. Once more.
I wonder if they could register twt.tr. No, I will not register fran.ky!
