File this under: “If you’re really bored”. Matthew Rothenberg has created a website that tracks every time someone tweets an emoji, in real-time. It’s actually kinda scary how often people are using that tears of joy emoji. I have to admit I spent a minute watching and waiting until one of the bottom emojis was used.
Lovely project by artists Loren Schmidt and Katie Rose Pipkin. Moth Generator (@mothgenerator) is a Twitter account that creates fantastical moths by combining randomly selected segments and colours of insect bodies. They even come complete with whimsical, faux nomenclatures like The Catskin Soybean (diella mulcanus) or Graceful-Infant Moth (maripatra incivia). More images below.
