Eighties style Twitter developed – just for kicks

The fertile minds over at Squirrel Monkey have been scratching their heads imagining what some of today’s biggest social media websites would have looked like – if they had been created back in the eighties and nineties.

Though a relatively short distance away in terms of years these decades are a world away in terms of technology as a series of mock-ups produced to visualise the primitive displays and clunky interfaces attest.

Rendering the famous Twitter bird in 8bit graphics renders it a pixelated mess and navigating the lurid primary colour schemes is as much of a battle as the terminal loading times.

“The Facebook” meanwhile has been given a 1990s look that shows how people would have viewed the site in Netscape using a dated v.1 interface.
