“[Every time] he sent a tweet, it actually became news,” he said over the phone Thursday. “The way that he #tweets is such a new way of running both politics and running the world.”

For years, Dinkelspiel was trying to create something like a “giant Kindle” that could display text on a wall. The idea was that the image would look less like a painting and more like it was simply part of the wall. And yes, Twitter was somehow involved.
Tech enthusiast Peder Dinkelspiel has created a screen that can display a live feed of Trump’s tweets right on his #living room wall with the help of Visionect, a digital sign company, and E Ink technology.
Think you’ve had enough of @realDonaldTrump? Try stepping into your living room and having a live feed of the president’s hotly debated tweets on your wall. No need to turn on the news, no need to open your Twitter app — or any other form of social media. All you have to do is look at your wall.
