Popular microblogging site Twitter has acquired music software firm We Are Hunted. San Francisco-based We Are Hunted was launched in 2007 in Australia, and allows its users to follow emerging music trends and artists. Its software continuously updates lists of top music around the world.
The We Are hunted website stated:”There’s no question that Twitter and music go well together. Artists turn to Twitter first to connect with fans, and people share and discover new songs and albums every day. We can’t wait to share what we’ve been working on at Twitter.”
It added:”While we are shutting down wearehunted.com, we will continue to create services that will delight you, as part of the Twitter team.”
