Media Facades and Projected Social Graffiti at Drexel University (Includes a 7-story tweet)

"Behold the seven-story tweet", a post by Leslie Katz on CNET News, highlights the Social Graffiti project by the digital media students at Drexel University, in Philidelphia. You can digitally tag your tweets with @dgmGraffitti, and it will be projected onto the surface of Nesbitt Hall. 

There is a built-in filtering system, so profanity and potentially offensive messages will not show up, unlike real graffiti.

The slideshow below is from the Social Graffiti Flickr site:
