Could be cool. I can always get recs from my friends, so this is just different angle of marketing I might be able to get into.

Just seems like a more mass version of Hype Machine.
They combined forces with WeAreHunted if that rings any bells.

I can't seem to find the iOS app anywhere in the app store. Am I searching for the wrong thing, is it called Twitter #music, just #music?
Here's a direct link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/twit...1612?ls=1&mt=8

Well, it's accurate (suggested tab). lol
Great promotion tool for lesser known artists. If this was my suggested tab and I'd never heard of IATA, I may find my new fave band.

Seriously though, I'm not sure how this is supposed to help people discover new music. If the idea is to display the ones that are trending the most (i.e. the most popular), then chances are you're getting bombarded with them on the radio, commercials, facebook, and tons of other places.
Going by that other user's screencap, it's more than just top 40 relevant.

sigur ros is on the trending and they definitely arent a top 40 band. its like people are bashing this before even looking at it.
Yeah, those semi-interested at least should give it a test-run for a good few days or so and then decide for themselves whether it's useful.

It's actually great for discovering new music. Check out the emerging section -- I found a few great bands that I never heard of. Like ones with 300 followers, it's nuts.

I feel like some people aren't reading through the thread to see what it's capable of.
