Twitter Wall at IN Interactive Exchange 2009 Conference
Media Lab were lucky enough to be invited to the IN09 conference, which took place in Toronto this month, to showcase the Twitter Wall we have developed.
The Twitter Wall was projected onto a large screen in located in the central hall of the event – a great location. For the two days of the conference the wall streamed live tweets relating to the event into the projection (relevance determined by looking for a hashtag, “#in09″).
People seemed to enjoy the bounce and crash of their messages as they appeared on the screen. We automatically displayed several hundred messages on the screen during the event and were very happy to be involved.
