(CNN) - The social media giant Twitter wants to know what the birds are singing.

The launch of Twitter's music discovery service was released Thursday.

The service helps users find music that is popular on Twitter, as well as music based on the bands the user follows.

Twitter #music is available online and to iPhone users.

It features a popular page that shows you new music that's trending across the social media app. An "emerging" tab shows "hidden talent found on Twitter" and a "now playing" tab show the songs followers are listing to or talking about.
