Tweet and Shoot by BNP Paribas : Tsonga Vs Twitter

A nice initiative by BNP Paribas, the French bank which celebrates the 40th anniversary of its partnership with Roland-Garros. It gives you the opportunity to train Jo-Wilfried Tsonga before he starts the French Open tennis tournament, via Twitter. If your tweets are selected, they will command a robot to throw balls to Tsonga with the location, power and effect you chose.

You can follow a livestream of this event on the dedicated website : tweetandshoot.wearetennis.com

Knitterstream – making tweets look good since 2012

“Every day, an endless stream of tweets enters the Twitterverse – some to live on via retweets and favourites, others to fade into the dark depths of the web, never to be seen again. This “here today gone tomorrow” phenomenon led us to wonder: must digital chit chat be so fleeting? We didn’t think so. And thus, Knitterstream was born. It began as a data visualization project – an electronic knitting machine from 1998 that, with the help of custom software and hardware, could transform a humble tweet into a tangible, real life, woven work of art.
