AbstractTweetDreams is an instrument and musical composition which creates real-time sonification and visualization of tweets. Tweet data containing specified search terms is retrieved from Twitter and used to build networks of associated tweets. These networks govern the creation of melodies associated with each tweet and are displayed graphically. Audience members participate in the piece by tweeting, and their tweets are given special musical and visual prominence.
