Came across this while I was trying to track down a link referring to my blog from BuzzFeed. I’m not sure who did it or where it was done but apparently, a graffitti artist slash Twitter user decided to “tweet” Just bombin’ a wall on an old, abandoned building’s wall.

Urban art in 140 characters or less

Twitter Urban Art

Twitter Urban Art

Later in the day,
Twitter Urban Art

I guess someone who really hates Twitter passed by, saw it and took the time to do this. I think this guy’s familiar with Twitter and its 140-character limit because the original message + the new message is still within the limit. Hehe

Pretty cool huh? The idea is very creative. I’m not sure if there’s been Twitter urban art posted before so I guess this is the first and I’m thinking this is gonna start a new fad. Soon we might see more “tweets” on walls.

What do you think of this Twitter urban art? Have you seen other Twitter urban art before? Should it be considered as art or as graffiti or some sort of vandalism? Please share your thoughts by leaving a comment below.

    @Monica – That’s true and after that CNN vs Ashton Kutcher thing, more celebrities and companies are joining Twitter. :D

    Twitter is really simple and yet very addictive and powerfull

    @Beer – I was thinking the same thing too and I guess it didn’t take long for Twitter to take the world by storm.

    Hehe..what’s the matter with graffiti tweets? Its creative and looks cool especially if the person who sees it understands what it is. :D

    I wondered how long it would take Twitter to completely engulf itself into our culture. This is a prime example of how Twitter has taken the world by storm. I like Twitter, but I don't know about graffiti tweets. Regards!

    @trench – Cool! What application do you use to access Twitter on your Blackberry?

    OT: Really? Well that means you have good taste too. Hehe ;)

  • trench, April 10, 2009 @ 11:10 PM

    Pretty cool Jaypee. I love twitter while on a blackberry.

    OT: Couldn't notice the similarities between your setup and my site. You have good taste. LOL

    @joie – You got that right. But then, the owner should be happy to have these type of graffiti instead of the useless and ugly graffiti that you usually see on public places. At least these type of “art” inspires creativity.

  • joie, April 10, 2009 @ 7:47 AM

    i think its an art if the owner of the wall loves art. If not, its vandalism. To me, it is still art.

    @jan – Yeah, just like what jhay said, it would be a nice activity this summer in the Philippines and spread positivity and hope in our country in 140 characters or less. :D

  • JP Habaradas, April 9, 2009 @ 4:05 AM

    @K – Hehe..good to know you liked it. Thanks! Belated Happy Easter to you! :D

  • K, April 9, 2009 @ 4:04 AM

    This is so cute.

    Have a good Easter, JP.

  • JP Habaradas, April 9, 2009 @ 12:45 AM

    @jhay – Hehe, yeah that would be a great idea. It would be a good way to promote positive values and messages in a unique and unconventional way. It will be a new style of urban graffiti. :D

  • jan, April 9, 2009 @ 4:16 AM

    Well, I love it. Wish I can see more of this in the Philippines in public places. And even in public comfort rooms where mindless graffiti can be found. Time to unleash your genius in 140-characters folks. lol

  • jhay, April 9, 2009 @ 12:44 AM

    This would be a good thing to do this summer on the streets of Manila. LOLZ

  • JP Habaradas, April 8, 2009 @ 8:25 PM

    @Raju – Yes it is. Seems like Twitter just can’t stop gaining momentum and popularity each day. Soon almost everyone on planet earth will be on Twitter. LOL

  • Raju, April 8, 2009 @ 8:23 PM

    LOL!! Twitter bug (errrr… I mean bird) is catching on with everyone!!
