Public Bench Tweets to Make Open Spaces More Social (Video) : TreeHugger via @TreeHugger
I'm a little torn about the idea. On the one hand, I like the interactive feature of the bench and as everyone knows, we're fairly obsessed with using social media to broadcast just about everything these days. But on the other hand, aren't park benches supposed to be a resting place, a reprieve from the hustle of the day where one can sit back and just breathe for a moment? If you knew your photo was being tweeted when you took a seat, would you use the bench? I'm guessing some people definitely would, but others (including me) might pick a different seat.
