Over the weekend Twitter pulled its #Music app from the App Store, ending the brief run of the trending music discovery service. Twitter #Music will go offline exactly one year after its debut, shuttering services on April 18th.

Twitter’s take on music discovery never fit neatly among other radio apps, opting to focus on helping users find new songs and artists rather than providing a streaming service to listen to tunes. The highlight of #Music’s brief existence was perhaps the addition of an iTunes Radio station based on music currently trending on Twitter.
