Twittering is a web enabled telephone that allows people with estranged family members to gain an ambient sense of activity among their loved ones.
Knowing that a person is active and well can be extremely comforting, so much so that we don't need to contact them directly. We gathered twitter activity and made this with people who don't regularly use social media in mind.
When Twittering rings, we're being spoken to; if it moves, someone said something; if there's a lot of chatter on the line, everyone's been busy today. Everyone knows how to use a telephone and everyone wants to hear from their loved ones. This 'phone is an easy and fun way of twittering.
