Twitter and Billboard announced earlier today an exclusive, multi-year partnership. “Billboards Twitter Real-Time Charts” will be premièring within the next few weeks. This new music conversion is meant to track U.S. music conversions within each tweet sent out on a daily basis. This keeps the Billboards information up to date in real-time data.
As part of the initiative, Billboard and Twitter have signed a Twitter Amplify partnership, which will help distribute the chart beyond Billboard.com and include custom in-Tweet charts and in-Tweet video round ups of the week in music on Twitter
The charts will reflect the top tracks being discussed at the moment and over an extended period of time on Twitter, as well as surface the most talked about and shared songs by new and upcoming acts. The chart will live on Billboard.com and will also be shared through Billboard’s Twitter account, @billboard, multiple times a week.
