The much discussed  rumor about Twitter’s standalone music has finally became true. Recently American Idol host  Ryan Seacrest has tweeted about this tweet which added more buzz in the tech world. Soon after seeing this tweet the social music startup We Are Hunted tweeted back at him and announced that it had been acquired by Twitter.  It’s been rumored that the app will be named as ‘Twitter Music’.

Twitter hasn’t made any official statement about this music app therefore you will have to wait to know more about it.

 AllThingsD has recently reported that this music app will be launching on Friday. We Are Hunted  mainly focuses on top trending music on social media. The twitter music app will also perform the same function, apart from that it will also give recommendations for other tunes that you might like based on the choices that you have already listened to. This app even allow you to buy tracks through iTunes. This app can be personalized based on the accounts that a user follows on Twitter. Songs are streamed to the app through  SoundCloud.

Artists and tracks will reportedly be shown in a grid design, with a single tap on any tile which will fill the screen, showing a bio together with links to tracks the artist has on SoundCloud, or even the track previews on the iTunes store.

It’s even reported that this app will feature Soundcloud clips which you can  listen to from within the app and music videos from Vevo. This app will be even divided into four sections, including “#NowPlaying”, and a Twitter account is not  necessary to use it.

There is no idea about on what platform this app will be launched. CNET  has reported that it would be on iOS.

The latest update is that Twitter has  made a home page for the new service however you  won’t be able to sign in to it. We can guess that it will become live by late night today.
