Our Digital Many Selves

Made by Yanwen Dong

This is an interactive fake Twitter feed page of a person's digital identity. By using ads interest collected from different digital platforms as keywords, the system fetches tweets from Twitter and display them on to the interface. This project reimagines the user's social media page as how those platforms assume their users to be like, through the lenses of the collected personal data. It proposes a juxtaposition of how people see themselves vs. how their data presents them.
