Billboard to offer chart ranking tweets on music

Collaboration follows demise of Twitter’s #Music

NEW YORK — Chatter about music is everywhere on Twitter. Soon there will be a Billboard chart to rank all of it.

The two companies will announce a deal to create the Billboard Twitter Real-Time Charts: continuously updated lists of the music that are being talked about and shared on Twitter in the United States. The charts, to be published on Billboard.com and through the publication’s Twitter feed, are expected to be introduced in May.
