Like everyone (or at least pretty much everyone) I use twitter. It has been a pretty recent thing for me, I decided that I wanted to start following (stalking) bands, in a hope to not miss their gigs and also to keep up with my fellow bloggers and friends. I personally tend to not really write anything of much use other than random drivel, however I came across a girl today who has used twitter to create work.
Johanna Basford launched a 48hour twitterpicture project. Twitter followers basically tweeted what they wanted to see in her big picture and Johanna would then draw them into her pen and ink limited addition print.
The suggestions are hilarious and its amazing to see how she has managed to get each element to sit so effectively together.
A great example of how social networking need not just be a big old waste of time.
