A retweet is nice and all. But as an expression of affection, it's woefully lame.

Diet Coke understand this, and is taking a grand new approach to retweeting love notes from fans. Instead of just hitting a button on Twitter, it's retweeting the tweets out in the real world—in beautifully designed ads on billboards, custom jewelry, framed artwork, magazine pages and more. The surprise RTs will be tailored to each individual tweet, and will roll out throughout the fall.

The "Retweets of Love" campaign—by ad agency Droga5, with help from acclaimed designers and illustrators including Erik Marinovich, Marta Cerdà Alimbau and Jeff Rogers—begins this week with a billboard in Times Square, where three tweets from Diet Coke fans in Texas, Oregon and Virginia are being retweeted in front of the masses.
