Twitter Now Offers Music Service
The social media giant has officially joined the world of online music today with the launch of its Twitter Music app.
The premise is to help users find music via Twitter in a few different ways—through the bands you follow, what’s trending on the site, what your connections are listening to, etc.
Twitter teamed up with Pandora, Spotify, and iTunes, the company says in a blog post.
Is it any good?
- It’s “great-looking, both on the web and on the desktop, and it works well enough once you have an active Rdio or Spotify account. … But for the average user looking for a way to discover new music, the field is rich and Twitter #Music’s current capabilities are relatively paltry.” Says Darrell Etherington from TechCrunch
- Brian Barrett, Gizmodo says: “The most appealing part of Twitter Music at first blush seems to be the easy breezy discovery of what complete strangers—some of them famous—are listening to at any given moment. Less appealing? The fact that it’s cordoned off as a separate app (or browser tab).”
