Twitter today released its #music app for iPhone alongside a PC web version, which use information from Twitter talk on around the web to scope out popular tracks as well as new bands and artists.
Users who follow musicians on Twitter can also see other artists those musicians follow, listen to 30 second clips for free.
The tracks are sourced from either iTunes, Rdio or Spotify.
Twitter said the service will eventually be rolled out on iPad and Android devices,
Full songs or albums can also be played by signing up for a subscription from Spotify or Rdio, which have both signed on to help launch the service.
The app is currently only available in the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.
"Twitter and music go great together. People share and discover new songs and albums every day," said Twitter's Stephen Philips (founder of We Are Hunted) in a blog post.
"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."
The launch follows Twitter's recent acquisition of Aussie music startup We Are Hunted, and it appears technology from We Are Hunted has been integrated into the new app.
