On Tuesday, Twitter users will be able to tweet artistic work like poetry, images, and 6-second Vine videos to Madonna using the hashtag #artforfreedom, and the recording artist will be online to provide feedback on users' work. Madonna is calling it a 'live art curation,' and it will start at 1:30 p.m. PT.
The event is part of a partnership Madonna just launched with the hashtag's namesake, Art For Freedom, an initiative that encourages artwork on the topic of social justice.
Last week, the singer introduced a grant program in which she'll pick one artist a month over the next year, and donate $10,000 to the nonprofit or project of his or her choice.
The singer and her management have been flexing their digital chops lately. In September, Madonna unveiled the Art For Freedom partnership with a 17-minute video released with Vice magazine. The vid is downloadable on BitTorrent.
The event also comes amid a Twitter press frenzy. The social network last week made its IPO filing public, and any cross-media integrations that showcase Twitter's influence and usefulness will likely only help the company's strategy as it leads up to its market debut. On Monday, Nielsen said it would release a report that tracks Twitter chatter about television shows, in addition to its traditional audience-viewing metrics.
Everyone has to PLS HOLD THEIR BREATH #SecretProject is coming soon!!!! Keep U posted on the Release Date.
WE ENTERED LAST STAGE OF SECRET PROJECT ON MAY 12 #secretproject
•She's 'gagging' to host Saturday Night Live and is obsessed with cast members Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig.
•Madonna tweeted to Britney Spears she wants to kiss her again! Unfortunately, Brit Brit only responded with a vague 'Tempting.'
•Katy Perry asked Madge a genuinely thoughtful question, tweeting 'Which evolution of you in your career has been your favorite/most fulfilling?' Madonna responded, ''Ray of Light.' That was a good moment. I wanna see you in the from row somewhere this year. Okay?' Never an opportunity missed.
•In an extended tweet chat with Lionel Richie, she congratulated the singer on his own recent chart-topping album Tuskegee. Richie's album debuted at #2, right below Madonna's #1 album MDNA this week. Richie tweeted, 'There is no one I would rather be on top with. Congratulations! I am so happy for you!' Madonna joked, 'Ok, but as long as I'm on top.' Oh my!
•Last Halloween, she was Minnie Mouse.
•Madonna wants Quentin Tarantino to direct the video for her latest single 'Gang Bang.' Apparently she's already contacted him and he's actually making her wait!
•In response to silver fox Anderson Cooper's congratulatory tweet, Madonna flirted, 'Do u miss me? Do you want me to come back and visit you in a leather dress? What suit are you wearing?'
•She is an excellent driver, only received a ticket for having too-tinted windows (which she certainly needs).
•If she could time travel, she'd attend Martin Luther King Jr's peace march in Washington.
•Her favorite Superbowl moment: Not M.I.A. flipping the bird, but when the audience stood up during 'Like A Prayer'
•Of all the A-List participants, Madonna singled out one person with a most generous offer to open for her, even tweeting 'I worship you.' Who could be so lucky? Why, Skrillex of all people! The half-haired DJ hasn't yet responded (apparently his Twitter mentions haven't refreshed in four days), but it would certainly make for an interesting show.
•For Madonna's final tweet, she wrote, '#Obama2012: Are you coming to my show in Washington, D.C.? Make a girl from Detroit happy.' He can sit next to Katy Perry.

Oops! Morgan, however, wasn't about to back down.
Shortly after, he tweeted, 'Madonna's only been banned from my #CNN show @guyoseary - not my UK show, which sent that invite. But I'm now banning her from that too.' And then he extended the boycott to her manager as well: 'Oh, and I'm afraid you're banned from all my shows too @guyoseary - guilt by association, sorry.'
For someone who was only on Twitter for a day, Madge's feed has seen lotsa action.
She also got into a Twitter tiff with DJ Deadmau5, who accused her of making a drug reference on stage in Miami, to which she posted a hilarious twitpic (see picture below) and response.
Jeez, all that action in just one day. Can we please have the gal back on Twitter for good?
