Twitter removes #music iOS app from store, will kill service April 18
Twitter has quietly announced that it will pull the plug next month on its year-old Twitter <a href="https://music.twitter.com">#music service</a>, which offered users a way to follow and listen to the music of popular artists and up-and-coming discoveries based on crowd-sourced recommendations. The service will be shut down on April 18, and as of Friday afternoon the iOS Twitter #music app was no longer available on the App Store.<br /><br /><div align='center'><img class='mobile-img' src='http://photos.macnn.com/article_images/1395450990-md-Twitter_musicobit_inline.png' width='500' height='302' alt='' border='0' pagespeed_url_hash="963612194"/></div><br />

"We continue to experiment with new ways to bring you great content based on the music activity we see every day on Twitter," the company wrote in a follow-up tweet after announcing that it would pull the #music app from the App Store, and shut down the service on April 18. What form any future music-oriented service might take is unclear, but the #music channel appears to have run into the same problem that plagued Apple's Ping social music service: user apathy over a separate service for just music-related activity.
