Well here’s an interesting little development: Wednesday, Twitter rolled out new expanded tweets to select partners — including Soundcloud — that allow users to access more data and media without having to click through.
The concept of matching music to imagery is nothing new, but the advent of technology such as the iPad has undoubtedly made the experience of interacting visually with music much richer. In the case of Soundcloud founder Eric Wahlforss’ new album, Ecclesia, the ancient music of religion receives a makeover courtesy of that most legendary of tablet devices.
Soundcloud has long been a favorite tool among sound creators — it currently has the 15 million users to prove it — however, it has never really been that strong of a social network. Well, if a new update to the service is any indication, that’s all about to change.
