@tkawaja @RichBTIG it really bombed.@SAI this Pew data is from 2013!Genius. @samfbiddle at his best. http://t.co/1iTUTEAy51 http://t.co/5C9WE5jBxw@mikeyavo @BenedictEvans except there is no more scarcity of content anymore. Everything on tidal also on YouTube and torrents.This is the first time I've seen a launch event in the music business be built around artists signing a contract to charge more money
Retweeted by David Pakman@RichBTIG because, um....all the artists own it!@jonathanglick I'm sure the labels love his approach ("I will charge more AND pay you more money"). No idea who else thinks this works.@jonathanglick I really don't think it matters. If he got the top 500 artists to leave Spotify and YouTube people would just torrent themHere's why Jay-Z's #TIDALforALL music service won't succeed if priced > Spotify no matter how many celebs endorse it. http://t.co/dewwH6Owky@jonathanglick @whitneymcn I just think very few have gotten good yet. People need time to perfect a form.@jonathanglick @whitneymcn yes, it will massively improve. It is a form, like all others.@whitneymcn @jonathanglick realtime video is nascent, blog/tweets are mature, there are already RT video superstars (see YouNow)@jonathanglick I think that is the wrong question.

Retweeted by David PakmanAre livestreaming app defaults driving content? @periscopeco + @AppMeerkat default w/camera facing out, @YouNow faces the broadcaster.
Retweeted by David PakmanSo awesome to see @Twitter launch a product so successfully on Twitter.@jonathanglick Wouldn't share their numbers publicly, but one-way feeds != engagement@jonathanglick before it really grew. I recently saw the early engagement numbers, they were quite low@jonathanglick The web is two way. Always has been. No one "just watches" anymore.It's about conversations, not livestreams.@yinkawrites I worked hard on it@ampressman yep Labels have almost never lowered pricing, only increased. Only eMusic was successful at lowering prices for back catalog.The record labels "couldn't be happier" that they refused to reach more customers by lowering prices. #nicegoingguys http://t.co/MdyClLTLY9Iovine, Dre & Reznor designed Beats streaming service. It failed. So now they r designing Apple's streaming service. http://t.co/3PNNz2fzFe
