According to the company, users can link their Twitter account to Ping and find other contacts that he/she follows. Once the accounts are linked, a tweet will be sent to your followers whenever you post, like, or review a song or album on Ping. The Tweet will come with playable song previews and links to purchase and download music from iTunes.
“When you click on a Tweet that’s sent via Ping or that contains an iTunes link, you’ll see the song or album in Twitter’s details pane, with the ability to listen to song previews from iTunes, making the experience even richer,” said the company in a blog post posted on the Twitter website.
The iTunes song previews are available on Twitter.com in the 23 countries where the iTunes Store offers music.
