Twitter has today announced that its Twitter Music application for iOS will no longer be available to download.

The app was first launched in April 2013, as a standalone music discovery app, it looked at the people you were following on Twitter and provided music recommendations based off them and then served a mix of music which you could then listen too on other services, but despite this pretty neat sounding idea it now seems that the service didn’t get the numbers Twitter was hoping for.

According to reports this shut down is something that Twitter has been considering since autumn, however there has been no word on the shut down until now, revealed by a Tweet Twitter posted on Friday, revealing that it will remove the application on March 21st (yesterday).

They then added to the Tweet with the following comment, “We continue to experiment with new ways to bring you great content based on the music activity we see every day on Twitter.”

Current users will still have access until April 18th, after which time everyone will officially be cut off from the service.
