You Can Have Designer Tweets with Twitter Text Art

Twitter artUnicode Twitter Text Art to Create and then Post on Twitter

I began noticing Twitter text art in 2010. I thought it was nice… but most of it was patterns and designs and I wasn’t too interested. A few months later I found there were people making pictures as well. That was more interesting. As an ASCII text artist I like seeing how text can be used to create new art. So I researched this new art and found artists, more art and some information about how it all works.

It’s different from ASCII art. It doesn’t use the standard ASCII art characters, it includes ANSI art characters. Plus using Twitter makes the artists work within the 140 character limit and the spacing has to fit with how Twitter works too. You don’t have limitless width or height.
