Tweeter Street

Here's another meet the tweeters project. London-based photographer Michael Hughes noticed an app on his new smartphone that allowed him to see who was tweeting in his vicinity.  This got him thinking; he wanted to know what these people looked like and where they were when they tweeted.  So he chose the most eyecatching posts and contacted the people behind them, asking if they wanted to recreate the moment they'd just tweeted about. Besides satisfying his (and our!) curiosity, Michael says this project aims to humanise the social media experience, reminding us that real people are behind the tweets.  Michael's site:  The tweeterstreet site:
