Below you will see the last 10 tweets about iTunesMusic (at the time I ran the Monitter search):
As you can see, a lot of these are RT (retweets) which is when someone repeats what another person has tweeted.
These tweets are also originating from various devices such as smartphones and laptops.
The iTunesMusic mentions tend to be about new music/singles being releases, and promotion of musicians themselves rather than the actual iTunes software.
In the end this is still leading consumers to the iTunes program, so it will have a positive impact on iTunes and may increase their amount of users.
I also pulled some analytics from Twitanalyzer which takes any mentions of iTunes on Twitter and formats it into a bar graph which illustrates both the impact and influence that iTunes has had on Twitter on a specific date.
As you can see, this was at a weekly high on March 16, 2013
Music sales in this day and age seem to mostly be generated through software like iTunes. The days of records, tapes and CDs are almost over (much to my dismay.)
Some bands are going “retro” and releasing their albums on vinyl again which I personally think is kind of cool. Check out Vanessa Carlton’s “Rabbits on the Run” vinyl or Paramore’s latest self titled album as some examples.
Please share your thoughts on the digital music era, twitter, books or music here. I’d love to hear your opinions.
’til next time…
