The twitter modules in Typeface Specimens generate unique settings every time you visit. We’ve done our best to prevent objectionable material, but some things may sneak through - so let us know if you see something weird.
In addition to the full-length tweets in the specimens, we’ve used Kenneth Ormandy's version of Word-O-Mat for single-word settings, and Craig Eliason Daily Pangram collection for typeface style overviews.
