The Streets mainman Mike Skinner is the latest artist to use his Twitter feed as a distribution mechanism for music – he’s writing and recording one three songs this week, and releasing them immediately online, publishing the download links on Twitter.”I am going to Tweet three new songs this week. I can’t be bothered with all this trying to sell you music. It wastes valuable time,” he told fans, before claiming he’ll be in “so much trouble” for doing it.Yeah, Lily Allen tried that protestation last time she launched a pre-album viral campaign too. But even so, we think it’s a great use of Twitter, so hats off to him.
