For the Washington Post 1 million Twitter followers, the major news organization has decided to spread the love with a graphic response. Linking to a special interactive design by clicking on the company logo, you are zoomed into pixels of the faces of its actual Twitter followers. The never-ending zoomer continues every time you click in.

The design is a great way to show its Twitter fans appreciation. After setting up the Washington Post account back in 2007 and tweeting over 60,000 tweets on relevant news topics, articles, and re-tweets of its writers and news personalities, the clicker hit one million, which is a huge accomplishment. As a celebration alongside this fantastic graphic design, it has also included some of its most tweeted articles and re-tweeted tweets that helped it gain its huge following.
