The rumor that Twitter’s eagerly anticipated music service would be dropping late last week may have turned out to be false, but today, Twitter #music is finally upon us. With many hundreds of millions of active users on its network, a concentrated music discovery service would seem the natural next step, and although still in the early stages, it will help users source new artist recommendations based on their Twitter activity.
