Yesterday, we reported that Apple and Twitter had entered into a partnership whereby Ping users could have their likes, follows, and purchases tweeted using their Twitter account, and users on the social micro-blogging service would be able to listen to song previews right from the Twitter web interface. But, why did Apple not choose Facebook over Twitter? After all, there are many more Facebook users than Twitter.
While Facebook and Apple are still working things out over the Ping social music service, Twitter has decided to hook up with Apple, allowing users of the 140-character microblogging service to spread the joy of music they purchase in iTunes. This partnership means there are a few new things for users of both services.
