Twitter Is Popping Out a New Twitter Music App Today

By Casey Chan on at

We know that Twitter bought music discovery app We Are Hunted and have heard that Twitter wanted to make its own standalone music app for some time now. It's coming out today. According to AllThingsD, Twitter will release Twitter Music—a new, standalone music application—on Friday.

AllThingsD describes Twitter Music:

The app suggests artists and tracks to users based on a number of personalized signals, including the Twitter accounts a user follows on the microblogging service. Users will be able to listen to clips of music from inside the app, using third-party services like iTunes, Soundcloud; they will also be able to watch music videos provided by Vevo, the music video service owned by Universal Music and Sony.

It's just in time for Glastonbury. Everyone wants their own music app! [AllThingsD]
