Twitter Music App In The Works

Twitter copyTwitter is preparing a standalone music app, reports cnet. The social media company quietly purchased music discovery service We Are Hunted last year and is using its technology to build the Twitter Music app.

According to cnet, the app could debut by the end of March. Features include song streaming via SoundCloud, brief artist bios, links to song previews on iTunes and music recommendations based on artists followed by Twitter users.

We Are Hunted is based in San Francisco but was created by a group of Australian software developers.

Earlier this year, Twitter launched video sharing app Vine.
