The app would highlight trending music on the Twitter platform. Currently, it is using three sources for music. Apple iTunes previews are free. Users of Rdio and Spotify get access to full version of the songs.

Twitter is promising that they would add more services to this platform in the coming days. Rdio and Spotify are not available in all markets so they need more partnerships for wider availability.

Twitter added:

Twitter and music go great together. People share and discover new songs and albums every day. Many of the most-followed accounts on Twitter are musicians, and half of all users follow at least one musician. This is why artists turn to Twitter first to connect with their fans — and why we wanted to find a way to surface songs people are tweeting about.
