“Have you ever opened a JPG in a text editor?”

John Brown and I spent an afternoon together hacking away at JPG files by manipulating them within TextEdit. We created a Twitter bot that would download a user’s profile photo, convert it to a JPG file, create an animated GIF based on one of six different “glitch recipes” that we came up with, and then tweet the glitchy result back to the user.
