    Hi All,

    Been a member here for a while now, though i'd share a project i've been working on for a while. An additive and granular synthesiser using data live from twitter. Basically exploring the human randomness to generate the 'sound' of twitter. Anyway, link is below if you fancy a look (no pressure!)

    Appreciate any feedback you have!!

    The only thing I would suggest is to add some sort of variation to the velocities of the tweets beyond your sliders. Maybe the tweets could be weighted based on how many times they've been retweeted; the more retweets, the louder the sound produced.

    Great work!
