Tweeking turns any Twitter handle's Tweets into a surprisingly readable block of text suitable for use instead of lorem ipsum placeholder text.

Anyone who has ever worked in design is probably at least a little familiar with lorem ipsum, the placeholder text that occupies designs until the real copy is ready to go. If you're sick of staring at Latin you can't decipher, check out Tweeking — this site turns any Twitter handle's Tweets into a surprisingly readable stream of conscious block of text you can drop into your designs, or just send around to your friends for fun. The website lets you permalink your "Tweeks" for easy sharing, or copy the rich text or HTML right to your clipboard to add to your work. While this isn't the first site to try this, Tweeking generates the most readable text we've seen. Next time you're working on a text-heavy design, we'd encourage you to drop a co-worker's Twitter handle into Tweeking — it'll make for a fun surprise if they notice.
