“Skateboarding is not a crime”

I remember that slogan from my skateboarding days.
But skateboards connected to Twitter? I don’t know.

Here is a video of an interactive installation called “Twitter SK8” by an artist called Jodi during WEBCRA.SH/2900. The story is that they attached wireless keyboards to skateboards to form “SK8boards” which were connected to a live Twitter account.

You can guess the result.

Shakespeare would have been, uhm, confused.
