Then he reads the words scrolling on the screen-”A beautiful day in Union Square but a bird just shit on my shoulder.” He decides to give it a try and tweets something about Union Square from his account and starts to wait. After a while he gets shocked because the girl’s shirt starts to scroll his tweet- “I love the art work in Union Square-it’s so beautiful!”. Then he also sees other people trying to tweet in their smart phones and then watching the girl walking around. Meanwhile the girl sitting next to her pulls out her iPhone and starts to tweet too. Bobby and the girl look at each other happily when they both see their tweets on the shirt and then start to talk about their tweets. Bobby starts to talk about how he appreciates the art work and the girl starts to talk about why she loves this park so much that she comes here everyday. So this performance of others and whoever has a twitter account joins in this social performance and the park turns into a space of collective action.

But wait a second, she sees another interesting wifi network name-connect here and have your say! She gets curious about it and tries to connect and yes she gets it. She opens up her browser Firefox right away and types Google but instead she sees another website with a huge title “Have your say about what you think and feel about anything!”. She fills in the text field into “I hate when people talk shit about Obama that he didn’t keep the promises he made.” And after hitting the submit button, she also sees another line saying “Now you can change this network name into whatever you want!” She gets so surprised and happy at the same time that now everyone can see it in Starbucks. So she goes ahead and types “Free Obama, he cares about this country, ok!” And then after a while she realizes that the wifi network name changed into “That’s bullshit! He doesn’t give a shit about the health care or global warming!”
