Billboard’s Real Time Twitter Music Chart Is Now Live

Billboard's Real Time Twitter Music Chart Is Now Live

Today Billboard and Twitter have launched the Billboard Twitter Real-Time Charts, which provide an up-to-the-minute ranking of the most shared songs on Twitter in the U.S.

Song shares are tracked via a number of methods, including the use of links to music platforms such as Spotify, Vevo and iTunes, specific hashtags (i.e., #nowplaying) and various terms associated with music (for example, “music”, “song” and “listen”) in tweets.

The main chart, the Trending 140, can also be filtered to display the most shared songs over the past 24 hours, and fans can also track emerging artists being discussed on Twitter.

“Twitter is where the music of the moment is discovered and discussed — every day, new songs and new artists are breaking on the platform,” said Bob Moczydlowsky, Twitter’s head of music, about the venture back in March. “We’re partnering with Billboard to create a ground-breaking chart to track the conversation around music as it happens. This means when artists share songs and engage with their audience on Twitter, the buzz they create will now be visible to fans, other musicians and industry decision makers in real-time.”
