Talking tech since 2003

Today is a sad day for those of us who actually used Twitter’s floundering Twitter Music service, originally released last April, just shy of a year ago. While the service has been rumored to be on the chopping block for quite some time now, Twitter finally confirmed just minutes ago on the service’s official Twitter account that Twitter Music will be at long last shutting down on April 18th.

The official application will be removed from the App Store immediately, while the service itself will remain functional for anyone who’s already got the application installed on their devices until the 18th. Twitter Music failed to garner a following with interest quickly dying down not long after the service’s official launch, Twitter claims that they “continue to experiment with new ways to bring you great content based on the music activity we see every day on Twitter.” So while this may be the end of Twitter Music, there still could be plenty to look forward to in the days ahead.
