It’s one of the most popular forms of social media, which has you communicating by Tweets.  But now, instead of being associated only with the sounds of a bird, Twitter is adding a different kind of song to its capability.

BBC.COM reports Twitter has unveiled a new music app which will recommend tracks based on who you follow on the social network.  You can read about it by clicking here.

Songs can be played directly in the app via services such as Spotify and iTunes.

The software displays songs your friends are currently listening to, as well as suggestions from artists.

Twitter is actually following moves by other social networks, such as Facebook, to incorporate music recommendations in to their services.

Titter’s app is called #MUSIC and is expected to be made available to download for iPhones very soon.

No app has been made for Android or Windows phone platforms, but there will be a web browser-based version.

Apple tried its own music recommendation engine, but closed it last year.
