Discover your saddest, loneliest Tweets

Not all Tweets are created equal. Sad Tweets shows you the most unloved Tweets you ever made.

Twitter can be so cruel. You think you've made a witty remark, only for your 140-or-fewer-characters to vanish into the bottomless vortex of a constantly updating feed, never to be seen again. Now, though, you can dig up those forgotten words and reflect on just how unloved and lonely they are.

Website Sad Tweets, built by creative agency Party NY, will look over your Twitter feed and show you, in slideshow format, everything that fell flatter than a goose's foot -- that is, every Tweet that didn't get a single response -- nary a retweet, a favourite or a reply -- and for how long it has been floating in the depths of the internet.

It's certainly an exercise in cringe, exacerbated by the terribly poignant piano accompaniment. If you've ever wanted to feel like a Twitter pariah, it's the best possible way to spend 15 minutes. Fortunately, you can only use it to see your own Tweets -- so no one else can see that slideshow of exactly how sad you are.

Conversely, if you want your Tweets to get the attention they so desperately deserve, you can have a go with the company's other Twitter tool: Super Important Tweet.
