Killing Characters while Making Art

Killing Characters while Making Art

Dwitter (https://www.dwitter.net) is a collaborative community where members create animated visuals called "dweets" on an HTML canvas element with just 140 or less characters of JavaScript. The boundaries of what can be done within 140 characters is constantly pushed with a mix of algorithm know-how, code sorcery, and creativity. It's one of those cases where constraints can be liberating.

I'll showcase some exemplary dweets and then talk about JavaScript minification techniques and canvas rendering techniques.
