In 2011 portrait photographer¬†Chris Floyd decided to photograph some of the people who followed him on Twitter, many of whom he’d never met before. From a personal project this blossomed into an exhibition and then a book,¬†One Hundred and Forty Characters.¬† For his book Chris invited each those he’d photographed to contribute a short piece about what Twitter meant to them.

I edited the text and the foreword for the book but I thought you’d rather see some of Chris’s images instead.
