As part of a partnership with Twitter, Apple is going to launch a Twitter #Music station in iTunes Radio, according to The Verge. The iTunes Radio station was announced at WWDC yesterday. iTunes Radio is going to be integrated into the iOS 7 Music app also. iTunes Radio will feature trending songs from Twitter’s music discovery and streaming service.
This is quite important for Twitter because the Twitter #Music service has been struggling to maintain any kind of momentum. The app fell to #83 in the top free 100 music apps on the Apple App Store. #Music has a very clean design, but not many people are using it.
The Twitter #Music app was announced back in April 2013. The #Music app shows popular music, emerging talent, suggested content, and songs that are now #NowPlaying by people that you follow on Twitter. Twitter #Music is based on the company’s acquisition of We Are Hunted.
