Sources told AllThingsD that Twitter's #Music app is likely to shut down after "abysmal" downloads.


Reports suggest that due to poor dowloads and engagement with the app - spiralling to below one thousand mark - it's fate has nearly been sealed. 

During it's April debut, the app reached the number 6 spot in the overall free app downloads. Though in the succeeding months the numbers have dropped dramatically. 

The move may be a signal of a clean-up at Twitter as it aims to make its business look more attractive with its looming IPO offering on the NYSE.

The app allows users to discover and listen to tracks based on artists they follow.
