Ascoltare il “World’s First Twitter Album”


Anyone with half a brain can put a song onto Twitter by pasting in the URL for a song. For some, that isn’t enough — they figured out how to paste entire songs into the 140-character Twitter window.

It all started when Dan Stowell, a Ph.D. candidate at London’s Queen Mary’s Centre for Digital Music, tweeted “instructions on how to make a sound like waves crashing on the shore” according to a statement. Other students responded in kind, ultimately contributing 22 tweetable songs for a crowdsourced album called sc140, released in conjunction with The Wire magazine.
