Sweet & Tweet

A Different Way to Look at Twitter

Sweet & Tweet is a real-time visualization of Twitter feeds. Choose 3 keywords to search recent tweets. Tweets appear as candy-colored petals which gather around relevant words. Move a word around the screen and the related tweets follow. When a tweet gets close to the word, it may pop open revealing the message inside. Sweet & Tweet was created with Processing.

“If all Twitter searches were this fun, I'd probably do little else than stare at them all day.”
