    So, is Richie Hawtin the only DJ in the world to go digital? It certainly seems so.

    Now Traktor Pro 1.2 could Twitter your track selections. (What, on crossfade? On TrackLoad? I bet I could find a way to confuse that system...)

    I am inclined to second that.

    Be cool if there was a button or something. Like "Hit this for Twitter" or something
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    What about the super rare tracks that you dont want anyother dj's to know...is there a off switch? I love the idea, tho.

    I know a lot of DJs that do. *shrug* I figure if bands I like are getting more air time it's better for them. What good is it if there is no promotion?

    With the amount of trainspotters out there seems kind of pointless. Record a small video sample of it on your phone, post it up on youtube, post the link on a number of message boards and a day later you have artist, track title, remix, label, release date, size, length, what paysites it's on, what paysites it's NOT on, and even a few links in your PM inbox.

    The only way to keep a track hidden is to produce it yourself and never say a word about it.

    Only wack djs won't tell people the names of records.

    My knee jerk reaction was to hate this Idea but I think it's actually a great promotional tool . Finally something I can really use twitter for .

    My problem is that Im still a up and coming dj in L.A., and I know alot of "Super Star Dj's" and it rubs me the wrong way when they ask me for a the name of the track, why? Cuz they are gonna start playing it and they'll take credit for finding that jem. I have no problem sharing info with dj's that are my homies...anyone else, well as we say in East L.A..."Chales!"
