Twitter Music Site Goes Live

Music discovery service We Are Hunted confirmed Thursday evening it had been acquired by Twitter and and allows users to listen to their favorite songs as well as discover new artists.

“There’s no question that Twitter and music go well together,” the We Are Hunted team wrote in a post on its website. “Artists turn to Twitter first to connect with fans, and people share and discover new songs and albums every day.”

The Australian startup added that it was working on a new project with Twitter, but said that at this stage it was unable to provide further information.

Since its acquisition by Twitter, We Are Hunted founder Stephen Phillips has tweeted several playable tracks coming from both Rdio and Soundcloud, implying that both services may be part of Twitter’s imminent app.

News that Twitter and We Are Hunted, which launched four years ago, were up to something first emerged a month ago when Cnet reported that the microblogging giant had acquired the music site as long ago as last year in preparation for a standalone music app, likely to be called Twitter Music.

An AllThingsD report Thursday night said that according to sources familiar with the matter, Twitter Music will launch this weekend at the Coachella Music Festival in California.

It’s likely that Twitter users will be able to sign in to Twitter Music using their Twitter name and password, though it’ll also be possible to join without a Twitter account.

Twitter’s acquisition is the latest in a number of strategic moves that sees the microblogging service continuing to bring services in-house and expand its use of various media.
