How to make #TwitterArt

How to make #TwitterArt

Many people ask how I make #TwitterArt. How they can make it, too. Here is the first thing to know:

Part 1. Where to find the shapes and symbols:

On older Mac operating systems open the "Character Palette" (usually pulls down from flag icon upper right), on the current Mac OS (10.7) open "Special Characters" (at the bottom of the "edit" menu) on PC open the "Character Map" (I don't use PC, I don't remember where it is)

This, above, is a picture of the Character Map, which looks very similar to the current "Special Characters" interface. I enter objects from it directly into Twitter (or HootSuite, or a Text Edit program, like TextEdit). Then I tweet the art I've made.

More about how to arrange unicode objects and make pictures below, but that is the first step, and the most important one: Find the Character Palette and open it.

All the objects your operating system supports are there: ^?? ¦+- ?? ?? ???? ? … no special application or specialized knowledge needed! Try it! It is mildly addictive… =^)

I mostly use "Geometric Shapes" "Miscellaneous Symbols" and "Enclosed Letters"…

All these shapes & symbols are contained in Twitter's main body font. Most contemporary fonts contain the same unicode objects, though different fonts / versions look a little different & contain some different characters… Beyond A thru Z, there are dozens of languages, glyphs, symbols, objects, braille… invisible objects, even!

Important note: Unicode objects read differently in different contexts. Their appearances vary from font version to font version, between various fonts, by operating system, by browser, and by device. More PCs read one subset of shapes better and Macs read a different subset better—though there is a lot of overlap, and a few ways to optimize viewing (set Lucidia Grande as the preferred font for your browser.)

#TwitterArt is best viewed in FireFox (on most operating systems), and the current Safari browser (on Mac OSX 10.7+)

Part 2. The Order of the Objects

Twitter doesn't recognize the [rerurn] key, so making line breaks requires the artist to use unbroken strings of objects that are just more than 1/2 as wide as the Twitter text window. When separated by a space, these strings of unicode characters can't fit on the same line and are forced onto consecutive lines. That creates a "line return" and makes the objects "stack."
Stacking: 6 lines, 15 objects wide.

As I mentioned, different groups of unicode objects have different fixed widths. I usually work with the subset of "Geometrical Shapes" of "1-unit" width that views best on Mac and on hand-held devices like smart phones and tablets. ??????????????????? ???????? ??????>? and a few more + some "Miscellaneous Symbols." I think of these as "second generation" unicode objects.

To make a line break and create the kind of "stacked" images and block-writing that I do, I use 15 of these shapes in a row. Up to 29 will fit on a single line, but 15 is the only width that works in both the main Twitter window and the extended right-side-bar.

Strings of 15 to 29 "second generation" unicode objects a line break.

Strings of 21 to 41 "first generation" unicode objects make a line break.

"First generation" unicode objects are narrower, at 3/4 the width of the 2nd generation ones. They include г¦LL-+¦L-гL¦ ------ ¦-= and several more shapes. They work better on more PCs, view incorrectly on more Macs and mobile devices, but still read fine on many Macs & hand-helds. (I will never be able to upgrade one of my Macs from OSX 10.4.11 because it views both first and second generation shapes correctly (in FireFox 3.6.20)).

There are "third generation" shapes, too, "1-unit" wide that fit with the "second generation" objects that look wrong on my 4-year-old laptop but correct on my iPad. And situations in which less than 15 "1-unit" objects makes a line break and the narrower "3/4-unit" object read as full-width. I see people making art that looks wrong to me but where I can see what rules they are using.

I personally use a narrow subset of second generation unicode shapes at the same line width (15) most of the time so that I know that the widest range of my followers can read the art "right" in as many contexts as possible (in Twitter itself, those contexts include the main window right-and-left columns, and in the status window. Other contexts include other devices (iPhone, Droid, iPad, Blackberry, etc.) and other applications (HootSuite, Seesmic, TweetDeck, etc.))

Compatibility wise, it seems like TweetDeck and BlackBerry users have the most frequent issues reading #Twitte

Presidential Attention

Presidential Attention

Will SOTU live up to Tucson’s ideals?
By: Jason Hayes, PSR News - (1/25/2011)

Tonight at 9pm eastern, President Obama will deliver the State of the Union address. While much of his address will focus on plans for new spending, job creation, and innovation, expectations are that at least some portion of the discussion will also need to repeat his recent calls for healing and rebuilding.

While speaking at the memorial service for Tucson shooting victims, on January 12th at the University of Arizona’s McKale Center, the President noted how political discourse in the country has become sharply polarized. He discussed how, as a nation, we have become far too eager to lay the blame for perceived problems at the feet of those who think different than we do. He also stated that decision makers must begin to talk in a way that “heals” & not in a way that wounds

For President Obama, Tuesday’s State of the Union offers a key opportunity. It represents a moment where the President can move forward on his calls for cooperative effort and decreased rancor.

Before he opens his mouth, however, he has already set a difficult road to follow. His unprecedented 2010 State of the Union rebuke of the Supreme Court, for a ruling that struck down corporate political spending limits, was viewed across the country as a partisan slight against the ostensibly apolitical judiciary. The immediate and loud applause from some members of Congress following that comment only served to heighten the apparent, unfriendly rift between the various branches of government.

Early reports this week had suggested that, in response to last year’s slight, Supreme Court Justices might sit out the State of the Union Address. Later reports are suggesting that as many as six of the nine justices still plan to attend. Whether they attend or sit out, citizens, pundits, and politicos around the country will be watching carefully to see if the President will mirror last year’s words, or return to the healing language and the kinder, gentler nation he passionately argued for in Tucson.

Media responses to the President’s Tucson address indicate it is possible for at least a momentary reprise from the reflexive partisan jousting. Well known conservative commentator, Charles Krauthammer’s response to the Tucson address was nothing if not charitable. Mr. Obama, he noted, had made it clear that “unknowable evil” motivated the Tucson shooter. Therefore, attempts by both sides of the political divide to assign blame for the murders were effectively “over.” He praised the President’s words, described his recent “political rebound,” and argued how the emphasis on the innocence of a child was “remarkable and extremely effective.” Later, he described the President’s Tucson address as “extremely successful.” In the same discussion, noted media representative, Britt Hume stated that the President could not help but benefit from the Tucson speech because he “behaved, as some partisans have not, with considerable dignity and grace.”

In contrast, well-known Clinton administration insider and progressive commentator, David Gergen, commented in television interviews and blog postings that he had found Obama’s memorial service move back to the “campaign trail … off-putting,” He also argued that the focus during the speech and afterward was wrongly placed on Obama, his performance, and whether or not he had “found his voice again,” Gergen felt the focus should have remained on those who were injured or killed in the shooting. Gergen claimed he liked the speech and agreed with the calls for reconciliation. However, he questioned whether there would be sufficient momentum to carry the feeling beyond the moment, or if things would simply return to “the wars in Washington.”

We’ve heard it said before, that we’re at a cross roads as a nation. The President’s words, however, suggested that we face those crossroads, those difficult and life changing decisions, on a daily basis. We daily make the choice between divisive and healing actions. So, while the rapid swings of our political pendulum are now taking us from ground-breaking “change” to Tea Party realism and basics in less than an election cycle, the shooting in Tucson has added this new wrinkle to our political discourse.

Working from the President’s Tucson text and looking forward to this evening’s State of the Union, it remains to be seen if Gergen’s more skeptical outlook will win the day. We wonder if the President will seek to seriously honor the memory of those who were killed and injured in Tucson. Will he move beyond short-term expressions of empathy? Will he, our President, take the lead while still listening carefully to the voice of the people he has been elected to represent?
