Yiying Lu, the author of Twitter's famously adorable Fail Whale graphic, is returning to the site of her greatest success with a new set of matryoshka dolls that celebrates both the founders and users of the world's favorite 140-character social network. The handcrafted #NestingTwitter figurines include current Twitter CEO Dick Costolo and its originators Biz Stone and Jack Dorsey, but the outermost doll is reserved for the user community as a whole. Neat little adornments like @, reply, and retweet symbols decorate the wooden dolls — though you won't find Twitter's official logo anywhere since this project isn't affiliated with the company itself.
Launching on Kickstarter today, the project requires $30,000 to get off the ground and is already more than a tenth of its way to that goal. Given Twitter's widespread popularity and the undeniable charm of these dolls, reaching the necessary funding doesn't seem like it'll be a problem. And to distinguish your set from all the others, you can even get your Twitter handle and your favorite tweet inscribed at the bottom of the community doll.
