Looking for something?


CEO @StephenRandall found this floating around the internet. It’s a “notificator” or robotic messenger used in the 1930s for friends to leave messages for each other at a specific location. People put a coin into the machine and wrote a message on a continuous strip of paper that stayed up for at least two hours.

Digg calls it the First Twitter, but it’s really more like the First Wiffiti, with the whole broadcasting a message to a screen for all to see.

What Wiffiti would have looked like in the 30s

While essentially the two fulfill the same purpose of connecting people, I have to say our Wiffiti’s a bit more advanced. It’s bigger, quicker and allows you to connect to a lot more people at a lot more places.
