visualizing Twitter feeds with dynamic typography.
tweetPad is software used to visualize Twitter feeds in a new, dynamic fashion. The idea is to not only be on the receiving end of these feeds but to be able to manipulate them; to react and to interact with what we are reading. This is done by deconstructing the text: scrambling the letters or words, breaking sentences apart, replacing words,combining multiple entries into one, etc.
tweetPad also visualizes statistics on the source of the incoming messages (web, sms, instant messaging, or 3rd party software) and the number of characters per message.
tweetPad's interaction is playful and intuitive, using simple mouse gestures to perform all actions.
The tweetPad application is made up of an executable JAR file, which will be updated often, and a resources folder, which will most probably never be updated. Since these are both pretty large, you can download the JAR separately.
