Super-Dj and technology enthusiast Richie Hawtin has created software to integrate NI’s Traktor software with twitter. The end result is a constant stream of tracks that he is playing in real-time. Updates come every 30 seconds and include track, artist and usually “A1″ or “B2″ indicating the side and cut of the record. Cool idea. This has spawned many discussions on newsgroups and blogs about the future use of twitter and applications for electronic music. You can join Hawtin’s Twitter stream at http://twitter.com/rhawtin. More info on Hawtin’s integration as well as using Max MSP with Twitter (Tweet A Sound) at Create Digital Music. (Awesome blog.)
