twittermusicTwitter today launched a significant update for its Twitter #music app, adding new music discovery features to allow the service to better compete with other music services like Rdio, Pandora, and Spotify, all of which offer robust content discovery tools.

Users can now listen to an artist's top tracks, listen to similar artists, or listen to artists that a favored artist follows on Twitter. The #music app also includes a function that scans an iPhone's music library in order to make more relevant song and artist suggestions based on past preferences and it takes note of artists that users have tweeted about.

What's New in Version 1.2

We've added a bunch of new ways of discovering music. Listen to artist's top tracks, similar artists, and the artists that your favorite artist follows on Twitter.

We also scan your iPhone's music library now to suggest more relevant artists to you. And we show you the artists that you've Tweeted about so you can always get back to them.

Finally, we've localized #music into all of your favorite languages. If you're one of those good looking people living in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, or Switzerland then we've got you covered!

Twitter #music is an iPhone app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Just tried it, and all you get is 30 second previews with links to iTunes. This is not my method of discovering music. Deleted.

Haven't heard from this again since launch... Is anybody out there really using this or is it already a forgotten app? (sincere question – I'm from Europe and can't use it (yet) anyway)

EDIT: Reading the post again, seems like it now works in European countries ...? Will try it out immediately.
