Gay Byrne introduces a new invention from a company called TextTel from Ennistymon, Co Clare, on The Late Late Show in May,1984. And uses it to send a self-deprecating proto-Tweet (3.30).
The nameless invention had been ordered by the thousand, mostly from the US, Textel’s founder Kevin Neville tells Byrne.
Anyone know what happened next?
