The mural features four Twitter '@' symbols that have been turned into delicious-looking virtual 'doughnats'. The aim of the piece, The Late Night Salon says "was to make light of an icon that has become synonymous with Twitter. A powerful symbol which forms a huge part of social media and its means of tailoring communication."

You can see how the mural was created in the Vimeo video below:
