The Music Companies Wet Dream

Another way to get their crap songs onto a gazillion playlists. I'm willing to bet that the record companies will be setting up lots of PC's to stream nothing but their artists crap in the hope that this pushes them up the list of most popular.

Another way for the marketeers to control the drones (i.e. Twatter followers)

Thankfully none of the music I listen to would get anywhere near being popular these days.

Of course they do. Just in the same way as SMS and music or RSS and music.

FAIL

twitter and music together like...

A slice of bread and 3/8" Ratchet.

On twitter, like Facebook, i dont care what you are listening to, cos its crap - please see Gangnam style et al. Please include all k-pop, j-pop & pop music in general. Also refer this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uSlqI1AVUk for more information.

The only good that may come of this, is that a load of hipsters might drown in the mainstream.

Fail, because everything does.

So we will have twitter feeds swamped by people's play lists. Hope they have a way of filtering it out. Unfollowed a few already as all I could see from them was askfm posts.
