I finally got my Ello invitation last week, just after everyone stopped using it, it seems.
Hey, remember Ello?

But the social network is still making moves. This week, they’ve launched Ello x Threadless, which is a nice way to get a little chump change without advertising, right? You can buy Ello tees starting today.
Threadless is the online community of T-shirt designers; users vote on designs they like best, and the T-shirts get made. When the shirts run out, they run out. You never have to worry about running into someone with the same T-shirt, and you get to support designers, which is always a plus.
And so it goes with Ello’s store. Ello shirts will refresh every 14 days with limited edition designs by an Ello user. For this first round, they’re by @nopattern, who’s also curating the Threadless project. The Ello logo shirts will always be available. Now we have to see if engagement around the social network will last forever, too.
