Daily Deviation

Given 2009-08-31
Twitter Noise by *Quasimanga - It's easy to quickly grasp what's going on in this image, especially if you're a social media user who feels like they are drowning in all the noise. It's a deceptively simple image though: from the sign in button at the top, through the bare branches and the steadily growing number of birds and darkness until you do feel like you're drowning--making the partially hidden log out button a real temptation.

The only bad part about twitter is that people abuse it too much.

I love Twitter, it’s one of the most enjoyable things out there—the trick is to not follow every single person out there and focus on the “informational” users, or the professionals in your field of work (for me, that is design) who impart serious insight and random good stuff/jokes.

Still, this is quite the gripping image. I love how you pack so much relevant commentary in your work here. I’d really dig seeing your take on Facebook—probably the worst thing to happen to the Internet in my opinion. Keep it up.

Amazing! I love how the colors fade as you scroll down the picture, and I like that the "sign in" and "sign out" buttons look so out of place.

A brilliant piece! This is one of the reasons I don't use Twitter.

Are you British too? That would be so cool if you are. I like birds and general wildlife. I think it's amazing how many breeds of finch and so on there are in the UK though you don't really realise until you actually look around cus I think we just take them for granted if the truth be known. I think this pic is amazing cus it looks so realistic plus I like birdies yay!
