Twitter is rethinking its music strategy after killing its failed Twitter #Music service. Today the company announced it is partnering with Billboard, the music news magazine, to launch the Billboard Twitter Real-Time Chart.
The chart will track the data surrounding U.S. music conversation, and create what the company calls a “social soundtrack” of popular trends. The chart will be featured on Billboard.com so fans can see what music is being talked about on Twitter in a consolidated list. It’s the first-ever real-time chart on the Billboard website.
Both @Billboard and @TwitterMusic accounts will regularly tweet updates about popular artists and trending songs.
