Twitter's new music service is finally open to the public

Twitter's much-heralded music app, Twitter Music, is finally open to the public.
The new service, which is only available on iPhone and the web at the moment, mines the wealth of data from tweets to find and showcase trending tracks and emerging artists.
Users can stream music through the app by signing into Spotify and Rdio, and a #NowPlaying dashboard shows you the music that the people you follow have tweeted about. It also connects to iTunes but that will only play track previews. There are suggestions that service will also allow hook ups with YouTube, Soundcloud and Vevo.
The service was previously made live for beta-testing by celebrities. Twitter say that the app will be rolled out to the public throughout 18 April, so users may have to spend some time clicking refresh.
The move is no doubt an attempt to cement Twitter's popularity as a platform for connecting with artists. Eight of the 10 most followed Twitter accounts belong to musicians. (Ok, seven + Justin Bieber.)
Rumours have abounded about a Twitter music app since the company purchased music discovery service We Are Hunted.

In a blogpost announcing the launch, Twitter said that the service would only be available in the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, but that it would be rolled out to more countries -- and to Android users -- "over time".
