Twitter is getting into the music streaming business. The social networking company has agreed to acquire the San Francisco-based music streaming startup We are Hunted, in a deal whose terms were not disclosed.
The company is shutting down wearehunted.com, but the We are Hunted team will continue to create music services under the Twitter brand name.
Here is more from the We are Hunted blog: “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.”
