Twitter Music #DEAD

Twitter Music, the mobile app that was supposed to help us find new music by seeing what everyone else was listening to, was pulled from the App Store yesterday.  If you have it on your iOS device, it will stop working forever on April 18.

In the year #Music was in operation, it failed to gain any meaningful traction, so the most prudent thing was to put it out of its misery.  I had it for a while but I quickly lost interest.  I can’t even tell you why.

Twitter says that they’ll continue to experiment in this space, so we probably haven’t seen the last of the company’s attempts to aggregate data in this space.
