Twitter Orchestra

This is a musical map of live twitter data I made at ITP Camp 2018. Synth sounds are triggered everytime someone tweets a geotagged tweet in order to create generative music from live social data.

It uses Tone.js for the synths, React and MapboxGL for the map (with a custom overlay for the twitter data) on the frontend, and a Node/Express backend to stream tweets to the client. All of the code is on Github.
