Hunted Joins Twitter

Rumored by CNET last month and today the micro-blogging giant Twitter confirmed itself that it has acquired the team behind music discovery site We Are Hunted. This means that We Are Hunted joined Twitter and shut its music service, saying it will “continue to create services that will delight you” at Twitter, but it is still far away to make it public that what it’s working on.

“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 wish we could say but we’re not yet ready to talk about it, says the We Are Hunted team. “You’ll hear more from us when we are.”

But over the top, interestingly, TechCrunch pointed out that the combined formation of two is working on a Twitter music app, which Ryan Seacrest has suggested that it’s in testing mode now.

 

Here is what We Are Hunted mentioned on their website:

We Are Hunted has Joined Twitter

The last few years have been an incredible experience made possible by the various staff, contractors and partners we’ve worked with. We would like to thank our board and investors, particularly Graeme Wood, who backed us in late 2007 and never stopped supporting and mentoring us. A huge thanks also to our users, who kept coming back each day to discover the great new music.

While we are shutting down wearehunted.com, we will continue to create services that will delight you, as part of the Twitter team.

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.

What are you working on at Twitter?

We wish we could say but we’re not yet ready to talk about it. You’ll hear more from us when we are.

What will happen to my We Are Hunted account?

We are shutting down wearehunted.com, so your account will be shut down as well.

Update: Twitter Reportedly To Release Its Music App On Friday, April 12
