Apple couldn’t get it together with Facebook for Ping functionality so Apple went to Twitter. Twitter has announced that Ping is now integrated into Twitter.com and this will put your Ping activity, song previews, and iTunes links right into your Twitter tweets. The setup process is simple. You just head into Ping on your iTunes store menu and click the Twitter banner up on top. Just sign into your Twitter account and you are good to go.

When you are all linked up anything you do on Ping, whether that be posting, liking, or reviewing it will be tweeted by you. Within the Twitter.com UI are now iTunes/Ping styles song previews and links which make it really easy for people to sample songs right in the browser. The feature is now available in all 23 countries where the iTunes Music Store is live.
