Today is World Post Day - the anniversary of the formation of the Universal Postal Union (also known as the UPU).

World Post Day 2014

The UPU was founded in 1874 making it the second oldest international organisation in the world. Its purpose - to faciliate cooperation between postal autorities - is as important as its heritage is impressive.

Although seemingly far removed from everyday life, the UPU’s presence may be closer than is immediately obvious - particularly if you buy from international sellers on sites like Ebay and Alibaba.

World Post Day, first celebrated in 1969, is designed to raise awareness of the role played by organisations providing postal services.

Several postal authories are running events to celebrate the occasion, and plenty are talking about it on Twitter…

Here are some notable tweets that we’ve found so far:
