Exploring the boundaries between social media and physical interaction, Tweeture embodies digital communication in a robotic toy capable of tweeting its own social narrative. Through an exchange of tweets with the creature, the public enter a childlike play: social barriers dissolve and people connect in tangible, real-life ways.
