Twitter #music goes the way of the Flappy Bird, pulled from App Store as service prepares to shut down
Remember Twitter #music? Apparently not many people do, and as a result Twitter has decided to pull the app from the iOS App Store today and shut the service down completely next month. According to a pair of tweets posted on the official @TwitterMusic account, the app will be removed from the App Store later today and all streaming service will end on April 18th—one year after the app first launched.
If you hurry, you can probably still grab a copy of the app to use until then.

iTunes Connect to shut down between December 21-27th for the holidays
Apple has sent out an email to developers (via iMore) informing them that iTunes Connect will once again be closed for the holidays. During that time, no new apps or updates will be released, app prices won’t be able to be changed, Newsstand updates won’t be processed, and any price changes scheduled for that week will result in the app becoming completely unavailable until the 27th. Even statisitics and sales reports for developers will be delayed during that time.
The full email is below:
iTunes Connect will be temporarily unavailable from Saturday, December 21, to Friday, December 27, 2013.
During that time, iTunes Connect will not be accessible and you will not be able to submit any apps or In-App Purchases. Processing of any Newsstand Atom feeds will be delayed until after December 27. Sales and Trends reports via the Autoingestion tool will be available but may also be delayed.
Also, you should not schedule any pricing changes or apps to go live between those dates. Pricing changes scheduled to take effect in that date range will cause the app to become unavailable for purchase until after December 27. Similarly, apps scheduled to go live during that range will not be released until after December 27.
