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