MoMA adds @ to its collection

As a piece of design work it's elegant, useful, long-lasting but always finding new life.

It's the @ symbol, which we use all the time in e-mail, and most recently on Twitter.

The Museum of Modern Art in New York thinks so highly little ole' @ that it's adding it to its permanent collection.
