Parsed tweets to find out what music is being listened to. Like that it's local and interactive. Plays songs on rdio. Compare cities. Fun.

I thought this was gonna be another boring map app. Really cool idea and interesting to look at the results

Compare SF v. Oakland for music taste. Gracenote, Rdio, Twitter.
