(x)tree is a virtual tree  formed by tweets from around the world.

Harwood Museum, Taos, Nuevo Mexico

 
We will present the (x)tree at the Harwood Museum for the first Cuban Festival January 14 and 15, 2011.

How does it work?

The (x)tree algorithm, written by programmer, Jared Tarbell, will find your tweet and every tweet is converted into a branch in the tree.


The (x)tree will reside on a website where you can search your name and find your branch in the tree.


Every city and country will be represented by different colors so that we can see the countries participating in the (x)tree.
