Acquired by Twitter, We Are Hunted Puts Spotify App on Hold, Posts Epic Playlist

we are hunted top songs of all timeMy old friends at We Are Hunted, the brains behind the much-heralded Twitter #music app – and their new friends at Twitter — have figured out what to do with the We Are Hunted Spotify app, now that the firm’s technology is being used exclusively to parse Twitter data and turn it into playable charts.

To deal with owning two music apps with wildly divergent charts, Twitter will do the sensible thing and retire one of them — the Spotify app. As a farewell, Hunted team posted a playlist there consisting of the most popular songs on We Are Hunted from 2009-2012, as favorited by its users.

Here is that playlist in Spotify, consisting of 99 of the the most popular 150 songs on We Are Hunted from 2009 to 2012 (we had to recreate the playlist to embed it on a webpage, which is why it looks like I made it):

    Gutted – We Are Hunted was my favourite Spotify app and I don’t use the Twitter one. Oh well, best of luck to the team who made it, let’s hope something takes its place….!

  • Chris Corliss

    Oh cruel hope dashed

  • CBQSteele!

    This is terrible. I LOVED We Are Hunted to find new music. Now it’s just 150 of the most over-played songs.

  • Zizzy Mileski

    We are Hunted: you’re a bunch of Kunts for not letting Spotify users know you ditched them. FU.

  • Sarah Nielsen

    Emerge seems to be a suitable replacement…haven’t really tested it yet, but it looks to be the same concept!
