Tweets and Stripes

To my fellow Americans, Happy Independence Day!

As usual, the web is filled with Fourth of July celebrations and dedications. My favorite for this year is Code for America’s Tweets and Stripes:

The site aggregates twitter avatars from users who tweet about #July4 and beautifully mashes them up into a mosaic representation of the stars and stripes–again representing the diversity and unity of the original flag.

The best part? The ever-changing mosaic is interactive in that when you mouseover an avatar, the user’s tweet is nicely displayed, as such:

Coincidentally, one of my first mouseovers displayed the above Star Wars-related tweet.  :mrgreen:

I hope everyone reading this is having a great Fourth and that you’re enjoying your holiday weekend!
