Twitter Creates New Twitter #Music App

· April 18, 2013

 

The news first broke about a month ago that Twitter would be releasing a stand alone app that would was intended for invite only or celebrities but is now being made available to the public.

CNET was the first source to unveil the news but was officially released during the Good Morning America show Thursday morning. Currently the app is only available on for Apple users in the US,Canada,U.K.,Ireland,Australia,& New Zealand but will make its way to Android devices soon.

The #music app uses Twitter activity, including tweets and other engagement, to detect the most popular tracks and emerging artists, Twitter said. It also brings artists’ music-related Twitter activity front and center, Twitter said, allowing users to visit artists’ profiles to see what musicians they follow and what music they like. Users also can tweet songs right from the app.

The new app currently pulls it music from iTunes,Spotify,&Rdio playing just a small preview of the songs until users subscribe in which they will have the capability to hear tracks in their entirety.
