Music has been one of the Twitter’s most popular topics since the the social media website’s explosion. Seven of the top 10 most-followed accounts on Twitter are musicians, and all together they have more than 30 million followers. Now Billboard is getting in on the action, too.
In May, a collaboration between the Twitter and Billboard will create the Billboard-Twitter Real-Time Chart, which will track the most-talked about and shared music on Twitter, the New York Times reports.
The announcement comes in the wake of the Twitter #Music app’s demise, which was unveiled a year ago but failed to gain traction. It was removed from the Apple store last week.
An executive affiliated with Billboard told the Times the new chart will involve only positive mentions while filtering out negative ones.
