What is Twitter Music?
Twitter has announced the launch of its new standalone service – Twitter #Music. The app “uses Twitter activity, including Tweets and engagement, to detect and surface the most popular tracks and emerging artists,” Twitter wrote in a post.
Hosted on your desktop or iOS device, the app syncs with your Spotify or Rdio account, featuring four major categories: popular, emerging, suggested, and #NowPlaying, allowing users to share and discover new music. Cover art is a major focus in the beautifully designed app, making the user experience even more rewarding.
Twitter #Music features tracks defaulted to an iTUnes preview. From the player, you can advance to the next track on the list, buy the song on iTunes or tell the world what you've been listening to. If you happen to be a Spotify or Rdio user, go up to the upper right-hand corner of the screen, click Play Full Tracks, and you'll get the option for logging in to do just that.
