Young members of a Sheffield dance school helped launch a special postal service with a difference in the city.

Members of the Chapeltown-based Sharon Berry School of Theatre Dance visited the Sheffield Ampitheatre with a purple postbox to launch the UK’s first postbox for Tweets – so a Tweet can now reach those not on Twitter.

At800, the firm behind the idea, said Twitter members can tweet their message with the hashtag #at800postbox – and the company will print it and deliver it by post.

Simon Beresford-Wylie, At800 chief executive, said: “Twitter users love to share their thoughts; and with our help, they can now Tweet friends not on Twitter.”

The recipient must live in one of the areas where 4G at 800 MHz will soon be activated as the campaign is a way to remind people where new 4G mobile services at 800 MHz are being activated and to highlight At800’s role in resolving any Freeview disruption this could cause.
