Twitter pulls #Music App
Twitter has announced its dropping its #Music app.
In a tweet, the company says it will remove the #Music app from Apple’s app store and plans to shut it down entirely on April 18th, a year to the day from when it launched.
Pinterest’s Monetization Plan
Pinterest’s first advertising product isn’t available just yet, but Advertising Age reports the scrap-booking site is asking for commitments of between $1 million and $2 million from marketers interested in buying ads on the platform.
Not only that, Pinterest is planning to charge between a $30 and $40 CPM, of its promoted pins, which would push a given product into users’ Pinterest feeds.
Pinterest announced it was planning to introduce promoted pins six months ago, and has been testing the product for a select group of marketers free of charge.
