Last week, Twitter launched its new app, Twitter #music, on iTunes. Yes, you are supposed to say the “hashtag.”

Twitter MusicTwitter #music is Twitter’s new music service, designed to use activity and engagement on the social media channel to find the most popular songs and artists. This app also makes finding and following musicians on Twitter easier.


While this is a fun, new music service for Twitter users, it is particularly beneficial for musicians gaining exposure on Twitter. Now independent musicians may connect with fans on a platform that highlights their work and allows them to listen to music that they post and music that they also enjoy. Already-famous musicians have already had a chance to check out this new app; Wiz Kahlifa tweeted, “Man this new Twitter music app is insane!” and Jason Mraz tweeted, “Thanks to my friends @TwitterMusic for sharing your new app and connecting us thru music. Congrats!”

Now all Twitter users can connect with their friends and their favorite artists through music. The app is currently available on iPhones and can be accessed with a Spotify or Rdio account.

Will you use Twitter #music?
