Tweet Garden

One of the factors of the Node Garden project is how the different nodes are connected. Since this is a Windows Phone project I wanted Tweet Garden to build on the twin themes of connectivity and a chrome-less/content based user interface. The basic concept is that each user is represented as a node, but their node is visually constructed by their tweets. The tweets travel around the node to form the circular shape. When another user's tweet node is displayed the nodes form a two-way connection. As more words from their tweet feed are displayed the node starts to sends older words to its connected partners, and vice versa. The stream of words between the connections again give the impression of shapes (lines) without actually drawing the line. The result is that connected user begin to share their collected tweet feeds without previously knowing each other.
