If you can’t find a gift for that special someone this holiday season, you really have no excuse. Technology has come to the rescue once again in the form of gift cards. Gift cards, you say? Yes, gift cards. Those convenient – and formerly impersonal – presents can now meet the needs for pretty much everyone on your list.
Knowing full well that my husband of nearly 12 years would not buy me a Twitter @username t-shirt for Christmas, I began my quest for the perfect one myself. He would say it was silly, or worse <gasp!> geeky. But you and I know that owning the perfect Twitter @username t-shirt is a mark of excellence in the social media scene. A badge of honor. But I digress.
Case in point: I saw Sheila Scarborough wearing one. Y’all know Sheila’s cool, and only geeky in the most wonderful of ways. In fact, I blame Sheila for my insatiable need to have a Twitter @username shirt of my very own. I’ve secretly coveted hers since she wore it at #SoMeT. Damn that Sheila!
My quest began this afternoon. I perused the websites where people can make custom shirts like Zazzle, AtMe Shirt, TwitGear, and Threadless. Oh sure, there were dozens of Twitter t-shirts. All very cute. But none of them matched the mental image of my perfect shirt.
