This crazy bugger is trying to tweet the Mona Lisa. He writes:

Preliminary result of a little competition with the goal to write an image encoder/decoder that allows to send an image in a tweet. The image on the left is what I currently manage to send in 140 characters via twitter.

He’s doing it in Chinese characters because UTF-8 encoding allows him to send 210 bytes of data in the Twitter 140 characters.
