Billboard and Twitter Partner to Create Real-Time Charts

Billboard and Twitter announced today an exclusive, multi-year partnership to create Billboard Twitter Real-Time Charts.
The charts, which will launch in the coming weeks, will show the top tracks being discussed at the moment and over an extended period of time on Twitter, as well as the most discussed and shared songs by up-and-coming artists.
Billboard and Twitter’s partnership marks the first real-time charts on Billboard and continues their integration of new media music consumption in its chart rankings.

“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.” – Bob Moczydlowsky, Twitter
