Twitter May Be Pulling Its #Music Service Soon

The Drum has reported a rumour that Twitter may be pulling the plug on its six-month old #Music service.

The launch of the music service took place in April this year, and immediately shot to number six in the free download chart. However, the apps popularity has waned significantly since then.

The rumours, reported by AllThingsD, claim that the music app is ‘nearly sealed’ due to its declining performance.

This news comes as Twitter makes changes to its music department, along with several other rumoured moves ahead of its planned IPO, including the launch of a direct message service and the ability to user more than 140 characters.
