 Twitter is growing as a referrer of videos.  According to an analysis from TubeMogul and a (mostly misleading) post from Mashable,

  • Twitter is outpacing Facebook, Yahoo, and Google in terms of growth. But, overall Twitter referral volume appears to be comparatively low.
  • VEVO is broadcasting the FIFA World Cup Kick-Off Celebration Concert on June 10th, though global availability will be limited.
  • Younger people (18-29) are actually far more conscious of privacy issues than their older counterparts, according to a study from the Pew Internet & American Life Project.  They are more likely to limit information, and less likely to trust sites like Facebook.
  • CD Baby officially pushed its Digital Singles Program this week, a distribution plan that costs $9 per song.
  • BuyWidget is a music download sales widget that can be planted into any blog, page, or other net environment.  Artists can select and control the playlists, and sell them accordingly.
  • China is keeping its investments in Europe, and that ultimately helped music stocks in the United States.  In Wall Street trading on
    Thursday, the Dow returned to its post-10,000 position, and Warner Music Group (WMG), Live Nation (LYV), and SanDisk (SNDK) posted healthy gains.  Sirius XM Radio (SIRI) rallied 13.3 percent to $1-even.
