This week Wolfram is celebrating Benoit Mandelbrot‘s birthday and his contributions to mathematics by holding a Tweet-a-Program challenge. In honor of Mandelbrot, tweet us your favorite fractal-themed lines of Wolfram Language code.

To give you some ideas, I've listed below my favorite examples of WL-generated fractals:

  1. Fractal Self-Portrait, The Mandelbrot Set:

  1. A Binary Fractal Hand:
