In a word, advertising. Twitter hopes that Music will get people to stay longer on the platform and to get users to reveal more about themselves for better targeting. Twitter has been working hard over the past couple of years to increase the time-spend metric by fashioning itself as a media hub. Clark Fredricksen, VP at eMarketer, says that now Twitter “wants to be a place where people find new things. The launch of Music is a logical extension of that.” Giving users a reason to visit Twitter more and stay on longer provides more advertising opportunities.
