AMSTERDAM (Hypebot) – Dutch startup Twones launched in private beta this week and Hypebot has 250 private beta invites. Funded by concert giant Live Nation, the Amsterdam based company tracks a user's music activity both on their computer and online at 20 services including MySpace, YouTube, Last.fm and HypeMachine, gathering real-time activity and allowing them to store it and share it with friends.
Twones' goal is to make playing music on the web more organized and enjoyable. "Let real people, relevant to you, collectively ﬁlter and recommend music and music services", says Tim Heineke who with Diederik Martens and Johannes La Poutre founded Twones. "Our goal is letting users find great music and sites and services through relevant people on cool music sites. We work together with the other services, we don't compete."
