Time Out Melbourne

Move over We Are Hunted: Twitter wants to be your No.1 source for new music, as sourced from its own users...

On April 18, 2013, Twitter launched an app called Twitter #music, available to those in Australia, NZ, US, UK and Ireland (and Canada/Rdio/iTunes).

Twitter #music 'reads' what's going on in Twitworld and detects the most popular tracks and emerging artists thanks to people's retweets and hashtags. The app, available on iPhone ad web (Android and iPad) will replace the We Are Hunted website – the Australian tech website that Twitter bought six days ago, fuelling speculation that their own plans were underway.

Rdio and Spotify users will be able to log into their account through the Twitter #music app.
