100pxls, created by Chris P, is an impressive HTML5 canvas demo which can load and save 10 x 10 pixel images using Twitter.

Using the search input at the bottom of the app, 100pxls will search Twitter for that term and return the results as a wall of tiny 10 x 10 pixel images. The application also allows you to draw a tiny image and post it to Twitter – using common words to encode and decode the tweet.

A fascinating use of canvas and Twitter

100pxls is part of the Mix 10K competition, so Chris P adds that if you like his app don’t forget to vote for him!
