Listen to Twitter

Listen to Twitter is a Python2 web application that allows you to convert the sentiment of any topic into a unique musical melody in real-time. The happier the general discussion, the higher the pitch of each note; the more tweets there are, the faster the notes play.

A live version is available at listentotwitter.com.

Python dependencies

The application has the following Python dependencies, which can be installed via pip:

  • flask-socketio==0.4.0
  • textblob
  • tweepy
  • Flask==0.10.1
  • gevent==1.1b4

Setup notes

If you'd like to setup your own copy of the application, following these instructions:

  1. Install the above Python dependencies.
  2. Clone the repository.
  3. Copy listentotwitter/config.py.default to listentotwitter/config.py.
  4. Edit the TWITTER_* variables in listentotwitter/config.py with your Twitter API keys.
  5. Edit the HTTP_* variables in listentotwitter/config.py with the host and port that the web server should bind to.
  6. Run python runserver.py.
  7. The web server should now be running and accessible from your web browser.
