NEWS: via @NYTimes: Tweets About Music to Get a Billboard Chart

27 Mar

Yes, you read that headline correct, music tweets are about to get their own Billboard chart.

You can read the entire New York Times article HERE but essentially Billboard and Twitter are joining forces to gather real time content of all the music chatter.

“On Thursday, the two companies will announce a deal to create the Billboard Twitter Real-Time Charts: continuously updated lists of the music that are being talked about and shared on Twitter in the United States. The charts, to be published on Billboard.com and through the publication’s Twitter feed, are expected to be introduced in May.”

“For Twitter the partnership is also a chance to prove its value to the music business after the failed experiment of the #Music app. Bob Moczydlowsky, the company’s head of music, called the Billboard partnership “part of an ongoing effort to make Twitter the universal signal of real-time music measurement.””
