# How does Twitter sound?
Track Name: Audio Tweet 1
@Paul Virilio creating an audio stream of the ]complete[ Twitter data flow. Let's start with a simple calculation of volume:
Track Name: Audio Tweet 2
# Audio (CD quality) 44.100 Khz X 16 bit X 2 channels = 1.411.200 bits(per second)!
Track Name: Audio Tweet 3
@Paul Virilio having compared most reliable statistics on the number of tweets per day
Track Name: Audio Tweet 4
it is reasonable to assume that Twitter produces an average of 2600individual tweets per second.
Track Name: Audio Tweet 5
The estimated average length is 70 characters at 8 bit rate that is 2600 X 70 X 8 = 1.456.000 bits per second!
Track Name: Audio Tweet 6
@Paul Virilio IN SHORT: TWITTER CURRENTLY PRODUCES ABOUT THE sameAMOUNT OF DATA PER SECOND (1.456.000 bps) AS A CD PROVIDES PER SECOND
Track Name: Audio Tweet 7
According to Isaac Hepworth, product partnership @ Twitter "In a sample of a million tweets sent from twitter.com on 3 January 2012, the mean length was 67.9 characters."
Track Name: Audio Tweet 8
for a matter of simplification, let's fix 70 characters as tweet's average length [as in side A]
Track Name: Audio Tweet 9
70 micron is also about the size of grooves containing audio information on vinyl, not to mention 70 decibel which roughly indicates wax dynamics!
Track Name: Audio Tweet 10
finally, about 70 rounds of a 45 rpm 12″ like this are necessary to complete each audio-tweet of 1 minute 40 seconds length
Track Name: Audio Tweet 11
[it's true on "Tweet it!" there are also INTRO and OUTRO which only last 14 seconds and are not 140(0) bpm)
Track Name: Audio Tweet 12
@ Paul Virilio this record is an audio transposition of Twitter informational stream, whose dromology appears to be numerically connected (140, 70, 14, etc.) to cd and vinyl format.
Track Name: OUTRO
