After much speculation, Twitter has finally launched their music app! However, most Twitter users are going to have to wait a little longer before this app is available to the masses.
The only thing that users can see when trying to access this app is the Twitter logo accompanied by “#music” There is a sign-in button, but this is only applicable to users who have been invited to use the app. If uninvited users try to gain access, they will simply be met by an authorization-seeking message on their screen.
Users like American Idol host Ryan Seacrest seem to be enjoying this app already. As soon as the app became available to him, Ryan sent out a Tweet saying, “playing with @twitter’s new music app (yes it’s real!) … there’s a serious dance party happening at idol right now.”
With so many musicians and music fans all over Twitter these days, it’s hard to imagine this app not being a huge success. With this in mind, it shouldn’t come as a shock that companies like Pandora and Spotify will need to up their game. With the launch of the new Twitter music app, Pandora stocks dropped, as expected. Their market may remain steady for now, as the app is available by invite only. However, should such companies not take action, they could see a further decline once the app is made available to the entire Twitter community.
