How Twitter & Google Would Have Looked If They Were Made in the 80s [Video]

Written by Simply Zesty on

Of the many things you've probably asked yourself, the question: "What would Twitter look like if it was invented in the 80s?" probably would be at the very bottom of the list. However, that hasn't stopped one site from showing what popular online products like Twitter, Angry Birds and Google would have looked like if they were made in the 80s and 90s.

The videos, created by the website, depict the most popular apps and products online and on smartphones as if they ran on MS DOS. Complete with DOS commands and the sounds of disks loading and dial-up internet, it just reminds us how lucky we are not to put up with MS DOS, Windows 3.1 or any computer product made in the 1980s. So next time, your Twitter app doesn't refresh as fast as it usually does, just remind yourself how lucky we are not to rely on outdated technology.
