twitter seems to have converted even the snobbish of sort…

7 Dec

Do you TwitPic? On occasion I do, when necessary…like last week when a grown ass man was wearing pink, rhinestone encrusted Hello Kitty slippers on the train, i HAD to share…as i digress.

Apparently Twitter’s alternate picture upload site, TwitPic has tickled the fancy of the fashion industry.  This month’s issue of Italian Vogue is dedicated to Twitter.  Along with a great publicist, Italian Vogue always seems to stay relevant, remember all the stir around the
All Black Issue this past summer?  Anyway, the cover of the new issue is a collage of model twitpics and inside is a spread, under direction of Steven Meisel, of models such as Christy Turlington, Natalia Vodianova, and Gisele Bundchen twitpic-ing themselves.

I’m not usually a big fan of the whole twitter thing becoming mainstream; yet there is something engaging about the concept.  I also like the sort of grainy, lo-res, unprofessional appeal of the pictures; a nice change of pace, of the over glossed magazine pictures that we normally see.  Kudos to Italian Vogue.
