Beware the Tweet Seat

News

Taking a leisurely lunch break in a park, you may unwittingly have your picture snapped and sent out to the world via TweetingSeat, a new kind of interactive social media involving non-living objects sending out their own tweets:

This project stemmed from an investigation of communities, and focuses on the idea of creating an object that people may interact with on both a physical and digital level.

“TweetingSeat has been created in order to explore the environments in which it is placed and look at the people whom it encounters”, explains Chris. “The way in which the bench should be used has purposely been left open, allowing people and communities to build their own relationship with it.”

Have a seat on a bench marked with the TweetingSeat logo and it automatically tweets our your photo to its followers.

Park benches are apparently just the latest inanimate objects getting their own automated Twitter accounts.  Others include bridges, plants and ovens.
