Billie Tweets

Billie Tweets is a Twitter based tribute to Michael Jackson by the open source software developers 9Astronauts.  It combines Michael Jackson’s video of Billie Jean with a karaoke style scrolling of lyrics highlighted word by word from recent tweets.  Each word in the song is pulled from a new “tweet” and displayed on the website in time with the music.  It’s a very forward thinking presentation and worth looking at.
