With the help of a few of friends from Leeds we created a Twitter app and website that turns your #TweetsToBeats to celebrate the 2016 Leeds Digital Festival, which incorporates the Live at Leeds music festival. All you need to do is enter your Twitter account and you’ll receive a video Tweet from @TweetsToBeats with your personal beat.
Our #TweetsToBeats ‘algo-rhythm’ looks at three elements from your Twitter activity to create your personal beat:
1. We look at the frequency of your last 100 Tweets
2. We then look at the amount of characters you typically use
3. We then look at which part of the day you are most active on Twitter
The frequency of Tweets determines the beats per minute (BPM) and gives us your kick drum; the character use translates into your hi-hats; and the snare pattern is derived from the time of day you Tweet the most.
To help explain how the #TweetsToBeats ‘algo-rhythm’ works, we created and posted a short animation (below) on the #TweetsToBeats Twitter page.
