Sonos integrates with Twitter

Sonos ... today began publicly beta testing Sonos System Software 3.1 featuring the integration of Twitter updates into the Sonos experience. This new feature is designed to help Sonos customers tell friends and followers what is playing on their Sonos Multi-Room Music System by sending Twitter updates direct from their Sonos controller.

Using the Sonos Controller 200, Sonos Controller for iPhone and the Sonos Controller for Mac or PC, Sonos customers will be able to edit and post the name and artist of the track they’re listening to on their Twitter feed.

Invitations to join the beta trial have been closed. The new Sonos Software will be available to all Sonos customers later in the Fall.

The Sonos team will be able to answer questions, show a demo version of the beta and talk more about the Twitter beta at IFA (Hall 1.2, stand 130).

Entirely new ways to annoy your friends.

I really, really don't want to tell everybody continuously on twitter what i'm listening to. If someone wants to know they can already subscribe the RSS feed of last.fm for that purpose.

You are right. The Sonos Twitter integration is not automatic. You can just do it at will from the controller.

Eines Tages wird mein Kühlschrank ein Twitterinterface bekommen: bei jedem Öffnen wird der Inhalt gepostet ... Vielleicht regt es ja jemanden an ...
Und dann ein paar Jahre später wird mein Herzschrittmacher per WLAN jeden Herzschlag Twitter ;-)
Schöne neue Welt.

Klodeckel integrates with Twitter... ;-)

yes, indeed. This will surely affect the noise-value ratio of twitter.

I see other benefits of this trend, though.
