DJ Diplo: Twitter-er-er of the Week

By  | 

Of all the DJs using Twitter, we think Philly-bred Diplo—owner of indie label Mad Decent, half of Major Lazer with Switch, early adapter of the crunky dub pop rock mash up, and all around left-of-center dude—has used it most effectively. He’s spun at parties where he’s taken requests via Twitter, and he’s gained a following upwards of 85,000 with a sense of humor that we can only describe as wicked—or in the Twitterverse, twickid—with posts like these:
