Love and Logic Use Twitter on Streets
An example of when street statements start taking cues from Twitter. Numerous printouts across Greenwich Village and eastward implore pedestrians to re-tweet the message, “RT #HITHARD #OILSPILL.”
On the face, it seems like support for those affected by the BP oil spill disaster. Not quite. It’s actually a clever promotional tactic by the New York City band Love and Logic to plug its show at Mercury Lounge this Saturday. Apparently it’s their MTV/VH1 “coming out party.” And 50% of proceeds from their current single “Hit Hard” will benefit oil spill relief.
This wouldn’t be the first time Twitter made a real-life cameo. NYC the Blog recently spotted a Tweeter on Mott Street.
