Twitter Thread On Fonts Is Actually Fascinating

We're as surprised as you are. You wouldn't think a topic as dry as typesetting and fonts would actually be interesting, but since using some sort of a keyboard is something almost all of us do every single day, the history and language behind it is actually really interesting. The internet is host to many intriguing discussions on language, like this tumblr post about figures of speech, or this thread on translation. Or for some straight up language wins and fails, here are some uses and misuses of the english language.

Twitter thread on fonts and the history of typing, as well as modern application of that language.

The Kboard is a keyboard app you can download that handily removes all those unnecessary things from your current input device - like extra letters and things that aren't emoji. Because really, if you need more than "K," "Cool," and "lol," what kind of hip young millennial are you?

This is why you never keep a keyboard next to a dial pad. Sooner or later you'll try to text "BRB" and text "U!U" instead. Or try "WTF" and end up with "DAY." It's so embarrassing.
