500 Years of Western Tweeting

A session at Interesting North

Saturday 13th November, 2010

10:10am to 10:20am (GMT)

Use your words! What twitter can learn from the history of western art.

Starting under the watchful gaze of an insane king, before leaping back to the dying words of an 11th Century Islamic missionary, Chris will smear his way through a thousand years of artistic endeavour, sketching parallels with the short life of mobile communications and the nascent explosion of the social web.

If you use twitter at all (and, frankly, if you’re here that’s an almost nailed-on certainty), you’ll need to sit still for ten minutes and pay attention.
