Tweeting to a Building

Tweets on side of buildingRemember that saying — never type anything that you wouldn’t want seen on the front page of the New York Times? Well, Drexel University just changed that. You can tweet to a 7-story building!

It’s a great idea. Want to let the campus community know about an event? A great grade on a test? Tweet the building. Anyone can tweet, but the tweets are filtered. Not everything goes up.

The individual tall tweets stay up on the wall anywhere from 8 to 12 seconds, with built-in default messages filling the void when the queue gets empty.
Although the project is now over, you can watch a video to see what it looked like.
