Dear colleagues, students, and fellow computer music enthusiasts,

Please pardon the x-posting:

On behalf of the Virginia Tech Linux Laptop Orchestra, I am pleased to 
announce the first official public release of the L2Ork Tweeter.

*What is L2Ork Tweeter?*
L2Ork Tweeter is a free and open source program inspired by the 
unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic that has required a vast majority of the 
human population to practice prolonged social distancing. It is designed 
to bring communities together by empowering users around the world to 
engage in collaborative music making even over slow internet 
connections. It also facilitates the exploration of audio synthesis and 
the rich variety of sounds one can generate using the frequency 
modulation algorithm. It supports up to ten concurrent performers and as 
many additional guests or audience members as the server bandwidth 
allows who can observe a performance live over the internet. Each user 
is given an instrument with a tracker that can be populated by up to 64 
loop-enabled keystrokes or notes. This intentional constraint requires 
users to build complexity through interaction with other users. It is in 
part inspired by the popular social media platform Twitter that imposes 
a similar design constraint of allowing only up to 280 characters per 
Tweet. As a result, and as evidenced by its name, L2Ork Tweeter can be 
seen as a musical counterpart to Twitter.
