Twitter Music App Released to Public

Unveiled Thursday morning


You don't have to be the host of "American Idol" to use Twitter Music anymore.

A little more than a month after CNET broke the news that Twitter was working on a stand-alone music discovery app and a week after that app was rolled out to an invite-only group of celebrities and others—including Ryan Seacrest—the general public can now get its hands on the music discovery app.

Twitter officially unveiled #music on Thursday during "Good Morning America." The company later provided more details about the service in a blog post, saying people can download the iOS app via Apple's App Store or access the Web version at Twitter noted early Thursday that the app will first be available in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, and that the Web version will be rolling out over the next few hours.
