'Twitter: The Criterion Collection' Turns Tweets Into Cinematic Masterpieces
Are you tired of seeing tweets confined to plain text on a computer screen? Well Jason Sweeney, who runs the blog I Am Your Canadian Boyfriend, enlisted people to recreate their favorite Twitter messages in film form. Participants were allowed to act out the tweets, read them or even perform them with puppets. The only requirement was that the vignettes contain the entire tweet, and that the tweets come from someone other than the performer.
The messages are as schizophrenic as the performances. Most are funny, some are contemplative, and our favorite (i.e., "Who the f**k vacuums their apartment at 1AM? People who get cut at 1:03AM. That's who.") is downright violent.
