Twitter Music site goes live, but it’s ‘Invite Only’

The long-awaited Twitter Music service is now online, but you have to be in a very exclusive club to get past the log-in page.

Following rumours that the service was scheduled to launch this weekend, the social network has set the page live, with an enticing sign-in page.

However, when we tried to log in, we were taken to an invite-only page and could get no further.

As reported earlier today, Twitter is restricting access to a host of celebrity “influencers,” like American Idol host Ryan Seacrest who has been tweeting up a storm about his experiences using the service.

AllThingsD reports that the great unwashed may get access to the service in around a week’s time.

As such, we can’t bring you any confirmation about the features sitting within the new streaming service.

Just last night the company confirmed it had purchased the WeTheHunted streaming service, which earned its crust as a means of finding popular and emerging artists from across the globe.

Rumours have also suggested that feeds will be pulled in from SoundCloud, with track previews also available from iTunes.
Music videos will also be offered through Vevo according to speculation in recent weeks.

The celebrity endorsements which are sure to follow in the coming days should allow us to glean more official details before Twitter invites us all to play along.

It’ll also give the company a change to build a little buzz and anticipation for the public launch, whenever that may be.
