Holy Smokes! I took the whole month of January off.
Well, I’m back now, and I wanted to let you know that I’m following back again on Twitter. I didn’t follow back for most of 2012, but I like the interaction. I get a lot of RTs and MTs and almost never reply, so following back is something I do to be interactive and say “Hey! Thanks for following @tw1tt3rart!” I’m not on “Team Followback”—I just want to follow everyone back because I like doing that. Continue reading

I love it! Draw your own Twitter art with this new app:
Find them on Twitter at @PixiDraw. And follow them!
PixiDraw is nice and simple to use. It creates solidly-built unicode art that is optimized for Twitter, designed to read on the best range of browsers, platforms, and devices. I appreciate how streamlined Pixi is, using a small set of compatible “safest” characters. The great thing is that user can draw without having to think about row-by-row construction and object properties like I do. One can draw intuitively and edit fairly easily.
It was made by the excellent Twitter artist @TakashiFujita so I’m not surprised that it works so nicely.
On 9/11/11, I clogged up the Twitters bad with my unicode gibberish. People love big numbers & dates, so my 9-11 art got passed around a lot. Most notably, Vinny (from The Jersey Shore) snagged it and tweeted it and got his #1 most fav’d, most retweeted Tweet ever. According to @Favstar, it got 18,000+ retweets. In my experience, @Favstar doesn’t track new users for a couple months, so their count is often low by more than 25%… So this was well over 20,000… maybe 23K RTs for Vinny Guadagnino.
