The Washington Post's Twitter feed reached 1 million followers Tuesday, and rather than celebrate with the usual, dull tweets we send out when we reach some arbitrary social media landmark, they put together a fun tribute by embedding the images of their Twitter followers' profile pictures into an interactive graphic. Users can click to zoom on a single section of photos and as soon as they zoom to the size of one photo, it breaks up into thousands of tiles again (as seen in the screenshot above) allowing the user to continue zooming.
The zooms within zooms call to mind Charles and Rae Eames' 1977 short "Powers of Ten," that shows an entire universe inside the tiniest cell. We certainly encourage you to look for your own image and play around with it over at The Washington Post.
