Billboard and Twitter Team Up to Create “Real-Time Charts”

Just last week we learned that the short-lived Twitter Music app was being shut down, although news of its closing came accompanied by the message that Twitter would continue to “experiment with new ways to bring you great content based on the music activity we see every day on Twitter.”

Presumably one part of that effort is a new partnership with Billboard, which will bring us “real-time charts” that reflect exactly what music Twitter users are talking about. The charts, which will focus on U.S. music conversations, will launch in the coming weeks and be housed on Billboard.com.

Apparently, “these powerful co-branded charts will reshape for consumers and the industry the way music success is measured,” but will they help bring any shine to music’s 99%?
