The Twitter version of Marclay’s The Clock

“Nearly every second, a user on Twitter tweets about what time it is. It could be groaning about waking up, to telling a friend when to meet, to an automated train scheduler altering when the next one is coming. By searching Twitter for the current time we get a tiny glimpse of how active and far reaching the social network is.”

Actually, Chirp Clock makes much more sense that The Clock, a dull, overrated work that manages to impress us only for the giant amount of work and money necessary to make it (it’s really fun to watch, though).
