Twitter Will Introduce A Music Application
Twitter, a place where millions of people communicate, is introducing a music feature. This feature is expected to recommend music to users by using the listening habits of their friends and contacts. Twitter officials hope that this feature will give its 200 million users more to tweet about and entice them to stay logged in longer. Although they have declined to speak about it, Twitter has made a number of moves that hint toward this new feature. For example, it recently acquired We Are Hunted, which recommends music based on social media conversation. It also set up a page on the Internet that, when visited, asked users to give a music application access to their Twitter accounts.
Twitter has recognized that music is the topic of many tweets. The social networking service has decided to take advantage of that, and it should pay off. Combining music with social networking is a great move because the two go hand-in-hand. The feature is expected to launch this weekend, in time for the Coachella music festival in southern California.
