Twitter to list which music is most tweeted about

Twitter logo is displayed at the entrance of Twitter headquarters in San Francisco, Calif.

Twitter is trying to get back in the music game after it's music app was pulled from the iTunes app store, which was a failure, by most accounts.

Now, Twitter and Billboard are going to release something called the "Billboard Twitter Real-Time Charts."

Continuously updated lists of the music that's being Tweeted in the United States. Which I get.

But also...why?
