Reports: Twitter to Launch Music Service

The microblogging service plans to launch its new, standalone music application on Friday, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The app suggests artists and tracks to users based on a number of personalized signals, including the Twitter accounts a user follows on the microblogging service. According to All Things Digital, users will be able to listen to clips of music from inside the app, using third-party services like iTunes, Soundcloud; they will also be able to watch music videos provided by Vevo, the music video service owned by Universal Music and Sony.
