Household Flies Send Tweets As @Flycolony
'Flytweet' is a project by David Bowen featuring flies in an enclosed sphere with a keyboard and real-time Twitter messages are sent made up of the keys they land on.
David Bowen‘s ‘Flytweet’ is a device that sends tweets based on the activities of house flies. A collection of common flies were placed inside an enclosed acrylic sphere with a keyboard. They were filmed as they moved around, and when they landed on a particular key, that character was entered into a Twitter text box. When 140 characters were reached, or a fly landed on the enter key, the tweet was sent from @flycolony.
