  • Hypem sets up a fairly wicked twitter-driven music chart, and shows their math right there on the page: "We monitor Twitter for links pointing to tracks on the Hype Machine.

Finally, we add up all the points and figure out which tracks are tweeted by either the most influential twitter users, or by the largest group. "

    Interestingly, a Four Tet remix of MF Doom is currently topping the chart.
