I would say the music business will never be the same after this.
Amanda Palmer, who has a lot of friends on Twitter, just raised over $1 million in backing for her album, directly from her fans, on a Kickstarter site, mostly through Twitter and other social media.
Her twitter account is @amandapalmer
Her Kickstarter page is here
If you're over 18 or over, you can view this picture of Amanda celebrating
Congratulations to the music industry.
After this, who needs a big greedy record company?
All you need is a good twitter presence, and a lot of good fans.
