Twitter art for a beginner
With the growing popularity of twitter and many celebs taking to tweeting their messages, thoughts and feeling through text, some art-minded and creative twitteraties are taking to creating art work of various hues within the prescribed characters and specific symbols available on the keyboard and at "Character Palette", "Character Map" and "Special Characters" menus.
However, a beginner can begin with "Geometric Shapes" "Miscellaneous Symbols" and "Enclosed Letters" contained in Twitter's main body font. Moreover, since Twitter doesn't recognize the 'rerun' key, so one can use unbroken strings of objects that are just more than 1/2 as wide as the Twitter text window. This way, one can stack a few lines and many objects at a time.

One can experiment with twitter art in TextEdit with any text program. However, before tweeting the art, test-tweet it in the staging account to know that look right. Try a few variations before the art looks reasonable. One may even try his or her hand in further refinement of a given art-piece when time permits.

Also, have a look at some websites on 'twitter art' and begin with recreating some available art pieces through copying the art on a text program of note pad. Takashi Fujita from Singapore has done some good work on twitter art as shown in the inset picture.
