Twitter is set to launch a standalone music app on iOS before the end of this month, according to CNET. The app, which is going to be called “Twitter Music,” has been built by the team behind the music discovery site We Are Hunted, which Twitter reportedly acquired late last year. We Are Hunted started out as a discovery service for music popular on P2P networks and music blogs, and has since branched out to provide music listening through its own apps on Android and Spotify. The team also previously built a number of iOS music apps, including one called Pocket Hipster. The new Twitter app will curate music based on the people you follow on Twitter, and then stream tracks from Soundcloud, according to CNET writer Casey Newton, who went on to explain.
