Yesterday I revealed my obsession with all things little.
In addition to The Odd World of the Littles, 2012 brings with it another new body of work titled reTweets.
Last year the Library of Congress announced that it was going to archive all Tweets. Yup, you read that right. Remember when you were a child and you heard those familiar words “This is going on your permanent record.”? Well it now appears that your 140 characters really are going to be on your permanent record.
I do not personally have a Twitter account, but was somewhat intrigued by the decision to save all Tweets. Who cares that someone had a ham sandwich for lunch? So many Tweets are useless drivel that, in my opinion, don’t warrant being archived. I decided that there must be some gems in and amongst all the drivel. As I began to search for interesting Tweets, I found that there are some really clever people out there. People who were able to convey an idea with humor in 140 characters or less. I wanted to archive clever Tweets in my own way. And thus came reTweets.
Are you gonna Tweet about this post?
