TwitBeat - Twitter Auditory Perception System

Reading time ~1 minute

Martin Weber and me created this little piece of Processing code for the “Perceptualization”-class in the Media Technology programm, Leiden University. You can watch a demo here. Please see the documentation for further information.

TwitBeat is an approach to shift the realtime-text-information from twitter to the area of sound. TwitBeat listens to public messages on twitter with a specific keyword. This key word can be a string or a #hashtag. TwitBeat then collects the realtime-information and conversation which is published on twitter right now. The application converts this text into sound which is hearable to humans.
