Material Category
@Twitter is a project commenting on the field of information overload, self-exposure and short attention span caused by using Twitter. The project consists of objects and interventions that are meant to bring awareness to each of these issues in a playful and ironic way.

The Twitter Shooting Game installation uses Wii Remote as gun controller to interact with a Flash interface. The game allows participants to respond to the annoying Tweets by shooting a flying bird. In real-time the game will post a “You Got Shot” notification to the Twittererʼs wall.
