Twitter debuts mobile music application for Apple’s iTunes1 min read . Updated: 18 Apr 2013, 07:30 PM IST
The app will let its users play and share songs from services including Apple’s iTunes
Twitter is going beyond 140-character messages as it vies with social-networking rivals to get users to spend more time on its site.
The company released a video app in January. Adding music would give record companies a way to promote new tracks by taking advantage of Twitter’s word-of-mouth network.
Internet users are increasingly relying on social networks to find new music as streaming services such as Spotify and Rdio let subscribers share songs and playlists through Facebook. The dominant social network recently updated its news feed to make it easier to discover music. BLOOMBERG
