Twitter is expected to launch its standalone music app today. We Are Hunted, a social music start-up site, confirmed the rumors and told its fans that they have been acquired by Twitter. The music app will suggest tracks based on data collected from the users’ accounts, including accounts they follow. The app allows users to listen to music using third-party services like iTunes and soundcloud, along with videos provided by Vevo.
Why I’m Curious:
I’m curious for two reasons: As Twitter becomes an full-media platform, will clients start to understand its potential and reach? Also, will this music app drive more sales for the music industry, since people can view what their friends like, listen to a clip, and buy it? It works for Spotify and Facebook.
