The Tweet Killer

To launch the new Vodafone TV in Germany, Jung von Matt/Alster invented a fictional tv channel called Alt-tv (Old tv). Alt Tv struggles to survive because everybody is switching to Vodafone TV that  provides full HD channels via internet.

So the boss of Alt TV, Gordon Barto creates an online platform to engage people with different funny actions and ultinaltely save Alt Tv .

One of those actions is the Tweet Killer. A lethal machine that scans Twitter and shreds all the tweets about Vodafone TV. The machine is live streamed and the user can tweet and see his message shredded live.

KLM Live Reply

To promote KLM 24/7 service, usual typed responses were replaced by a living alphabet.

For 1 day, The KLM Reply saw 140 KLM employees give unique replies to friends’ and followers’ tweets and posts, by assembling the answer live before their eyes. All within the hour.

KLM answers every tweet and post in person. Within the hour. Day and night.

Absolutely awesome.

The social Tattoo Project

The Social Tattoo Project is a social experiment to make empathy permanent—instead of fleeting—for world issues.

Each week, volunteers would get a tattoo that represents a worldly issue—the topic of the tattoo determined by Twitter votes. Four trends would be posted, but the most tweeted Twitter trend would be used. To vote for the topic, tweet #socialtattoo and the #trend you like out of the four to @social_tattoo.

So far five volunteers have received #human trafficking, #Haiti, #poverty, #Pray for Japan, and #Norway tattoos.

This initiative that blends art, human interest and social media, is to make the world empathize and care about the issues—inked in skin—forever.

GIFTEE: in Japan real-world gifts sent via Twitter

It’s been several years since we first saw the emergence of real-world gifting capabilities for online friends, and it appears the trend is still going strong. After beginning in the Facebook realm, though, we’re now seeing the gift-minded offerings move to Twitter as well — now with Japanese Giftee. Currently in beta, Giftee is an online service that lets users send small “thank you” gifts via Twitter. Gift-givers begin by registering on the Giftee site and indicating the Twitter ID of the recipient they have in mind. They then choose a gift from among Giftee’s myriad of options — currently limited to the offerings from select shops in Japan — and then type a message and pay by credit card. A gift tweet is then sent via Twitter to the recipient, who logs into the microblogging service to redeem it. Donations can also be made via Giftee to Red Cross Japan and other causes. With benefits for users, merchants and the sites that make the gifting possible, it’s no wonder Giftee and others of its kind keep appearing. Time to launch something similar for all those who tweet in your part of the world?
