Twitter Down Art Collection

Alot of people are talking about Twitter being down.

I have recently called for Twitter to decentralize, I believe the features of Twitter can be covered by Tumblr, and now I realize that I’m a dedicated Twitter user and plan on staying that way. I cant explain all of the reasons why, but I am sure that its really great and I love it.

So I thought it was a great time to finally bust out my Twitter 404 Art Collection that I have been working on for almost a year. I hope you enjoy it, please send me any screen-caps of official Twitter down designs you have come across and look for a Twitter Down Art meet-up here in NYC in coming months.
