Twitter, which has been trying to get people to use Twitter.com instead of third-party Twitter clients, is now adding additional third-party content — including music — to its website. As part of a September redesign, Twitter added a second pane to its website, which lets users see video and photos from sites like Flickr, YouTube (NSDQ: GOOG) and Brightcove there.
Under its latest deals, people will now be able to see clips from blip.tv, photos from Instagram, songs from Rdio, presentations from SlideShare and various content from Dipdive on Twitter.com. The company says it will be adding content partners in the “next few months.”
Twitter has described response to the new design as being “extremely positive” although it doesn’t appear to have released any new metrics since the redesign.
