Machine Knits Your Tweets To Create A Scarf: [Click here to view the video in this article]

Every day, an endless stream of tweets enters the Twitterverse—some live on via retweets and favorites, while others fade into the dark depths of the web, never to be seen again.

This “here today, gone tomorrow” phenomenon led Sid Lee Collective, Fatbox and Lunch to wonder: must digital chit-chat be so fleeting? They didn’t think so.

Thus, Knitterstream was born.

Knitterstream is a modified electronic knitting machine from 1998 that transforms a humble tweet into a tangible, real-life woven work of art.

By tweeting with the hashtag #knitterstream, the machine picks up the tweet with the most retweets or favorites, and knits them into wearable or frameable keepsakes—so your tweets will never be forgotten.
