You may not even know it, but Twitter has a service called #Music. Or had. Exactly because many ignore its existence, it will be closed by the company, as announced on Friday.
Rumors about the end of the service are not new. Launched last year, it failed to gather interested audiences. Interestingly, it will be deactivated exactly one year after its launch on April 18.
The app, exclusively for iOS, was removed from the App Store on Friday, the 21st. The company promises that anyone who still has the application installed on their cell phone can continue with normal use until the date mentioned above.
Later this afternoon, we will be removing Twitter #music from the App Store. If you have the app, it will continue to work until April 18.

#Music suggested artists and music tracks based on the Internet user’s behavior within the network. In addition, it displayed video clips and allows users to access outsourced services. Vevo videos were also available. It was expected that it would arrive in Brazil soon, as well as an Android version, but that never happened.
Twitter, however, promises to continue experimenting with different ways of bringing content based on the user’s musical activity, even after the failure of #Music.
