the ‘one street tweeter’ by advocacy group one brings a public voice to the G8 forum by printing tweets directed to the policymakers on the roads of maryland and washington, D.C.

with the one ‘street tweeter‘ robot, grassroots advocacy group one is bringing the public’s voice to the G8 economic
conference may 18th-19th in camp david, maryland. the machine uses non-toxic, water soluble paint to print tweets
onto road surfaces throughout nearby thurmont, maryland, and pennsylvania avenue (in front of the white house) in washington, D.C.
attached to a pickup truck, the machine works like an ink-jet printer, laying down paint as it moves at five miles an hour.
one hopes to have 1000 tweets by today; you can send your own message (40-characters or less only) about global poverty
and hunger to the G8 by tweeting @ONEStreetTweet, or via the comment form on the ‘one street tweet’ page.
