Dumb Cuneiform

"Some tweets should live forever. We'll convert it to a cuneiform tablet and send it to you in the mail."

How do you make them?

By hand! We take real ceramicist-grade clay and create nice-sized tablets. We carefully translate your message, inscribe the cuneiform characters, and wait for them to dry. Then we fire the tablets to make the clay harden, and last longer.

Previously, previously.

    What a ripoff. Their FAQ says your message is not actually translated into ancient Persian. They merely phonetically render your tweet in the cuneiform alphabet.

    Humph. If I was going to spring for this, I'd rather pay twice as much for an actual translation of my tweet into ancient Persian or Babylonian.

    Maybe for a very memorable tweet they'll carve in ancient Hebrew on stone tablets.

      There are only ten (10) slots available for early backers, but it's likely that a backup set will be collated with slightly different tweets -- such is life when you're searching Twitter for history.
