Billboard, Twitter partner to launch chart of most tweeted songs
- PayPal reported quarterly earnings way above Wall Street expectations on Wednesday. Sales grew almost 30% to over $6 billion. The boost in spending is driven in part by a surge in bitcoin transactions, which PayPal recently introduced.
- Jessica Alba’s Honest Company had a successful NASDAQ debut. Shares of
the company are at $23, which is 43% higher than its original IPO price. The
company raked in more than $230 million in revenue in the 2020 fiscal
year, 27% more than the year before.
- Billboard’s top music charts are coming to social media. Twitter is
partnering with the magazine to launch a curated chart of the most tweeted
songs. The ranking will list songs that are tending on the platform, which is
different from Billboard’s typical ranking system that considers how often a
song is played.
