Turning tweets into credits in a physical meets digital campaign.

Twitter Arcade lets visitors play with a tweet.


We developed a python script running in a Raspberry PI that crawls the Twitter API looking for the hashtag #WorketherArcade.

When a new tweet is found, it provides a 5V pulse to a custom board hot-wired to the arcade’s coin mechanism, resulting into a new credit.

We hosted lots of events at our office and we wanted more mentions on Twitter about it. We definitely nailed it with the Twitter Arcade.
