Every day, thousands of people tweet "I just ran ___ with NikePlus #nikeplus" I used my new robot to draw these distances on a piece of paper, plotting the runs as they come in from around the world in real time.
Processing pulls in the tweets. Tweets are sent to Max MSP via JK Lab's "Max Link." Max MSP parses the run distance from the tweet and sends that length to Millie to draw.
