The real potential for Twitter #Music has always been the idea of combining a robust music player app with the real-time trends and discussions of its social network. To that end, the #NowPlaying feed in the iOS app has been updated today to show the tweets tied to each track.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
When you select a song to listen to, the thumbnail will now expand and identify the user in your following list that originally tweeted about the song. Reading the original tweet is a useful way of knowing why it’s emerged in your #NowPlaying feed, but it also gives you the option to reply, retweet and favorite their message.
Furthermore, hitting the ellipsis icon brings up a basic share menu, either for tweeting about the track yourself or sending it to some else via email or text message. It’s a small improvement, but one that should bring forward the oftentimes forgotten social elements of Twitter #Music.
