Twitter Launches #Music App, But Can It Compete Against Powerhouses Spotify and Pandora?


The Twitter world is alive with the sounds of tweets and music today after the much anticipated launch of Twitter’s #Music app. The new music app Twitter #Music went live today to the public after being released last week to be tested by Hollywood celebrities who couldn’t stop tweeting about the dance parties with the app — Ryan Seacrest, I’m looking at you.

When downloaded, the #Music app helps Twitter users find popular music of their favorite genres based on the artists that the user followers. The app is broken down into four tabs — Popular, Emerging, Suggested and #NowPlaying — that together collect music based on the users’ tastes as well as new music others are listening to. The new app follows Twitter’s launch of its video sharing platform Vine and shows the social media platform’s desire to expand its services beyond just text and picture sharing. The app is now available for iPhones in the Apple app store and online at Twitter’s music website.
