The nothing

Ladies and Gents, this week’s tweet is THE tweet.
It’s the ulti­mate tweet.
It con­tains basics any twit­ter user uses. And it’s more. It’s art.
What kind of art it is, is what we need to find out.
So here’s what the tweet of the week is all about. Doomsham­mer says? Writes? Shows? This:

This is more than just a tweet. This is more than just play­ing a tiny tech­ni­cal game. This is a the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal expres­sion of the noth­ing:
On the one hand you don’t find a sin­gle view­able sign to iden­ti­fy.
On the oth­er hand and as a result of the for­mer you don’t find any abstract infor­ma­tion with­in this tweet apart from the author’s name, the soft­ware he uses, the star and the time the tweet was made. If you want to talk about this tweet you are urged to refer to noth­ing­ness.
It was Mar­tin Hei­deg­ger claim­ing the noth­ing noths (“Das Nichts nichtet.”). You can object against Hei­deg­ger that his hard­ly under­stand­able usage of turn­ing nouns into verbs is not a pos­si­ble way to iden­ti­fy truth. But this objec­tion could fail due to just reveal­ing your­self as being pig­head­ed. The mis­take of defin­ing how to iden­ti­fy truth could lie in your own assump­tions. But with­out try­ing to glo­ri­fy Hei­deg­ger we have to state that Doomsham­mer shows there’s still some­thing after the noth­ing has left.
Leave is defined by Hei­deg­ger with the fol­low­ing:

This is in eng­lish: “Leave is the absent­ed arrival of the hid­ing of keep­ing the progress in the begin­ning.” So Doomsham­mers’ expres­sion is both the absence of any tweet con­tent and the begin­ning of any tweet.
So do not let Doomsham­mer fool you by link­ing to his own tweet as a tweet of empti­ness:

You might still want to say, we’re miss­ing the point. We’re over-inter­pret­ing the whole tweet. We don’t have any inter­est­ing TMIs left and are urged to lift this up to one. Doomshammer’s just a nerd hav­ing fun with his iPhone.
So if that would be right our text would be TMI. If not we would have proven the incred­i­ble kind of art of this tweet.
We actu­al­ly think we can prove our the­sis.
We can’t do this the­o­ret­i­cal­ly but with­in prac­tise, with­in one of the artist’s tweet. Take a look at what Doomsham­mer threw like an unsat­is­fy­ing paint­ing into the trash bin just a sec­ond before reveal­ing his mas­ter­piece:
