Apple, Twitter Unleash Twitter Integration with Ping. [Ping is Now Social] #ping #apple

Since it’s release back in early September, Ping hasn’t exactly caught on. The overall idea behind it is nice — a more social music experience. But now after several months for consumers and artists alike to try it out, it’s pretty evident that Ping is pretty useless. Compounding that fact is the whole Ping-Facebook integration issue which blew up a few days after Ping was launched and once visible “Facebook Connect” buttons and verbiage vanished.

But that changes today. Twitter just announced on their blog that Twitter is now deeply integrated with iTunes Ping. Besides the given of being able to find your Twitter friends on Ping, users will now also have the ability to tweet out Ping activity. But the coolest part of this new Ping-Twitter lovefest is that not only will Ping-Tweets link back to the song/artist in iTunes, but the songs tweeted out are actually able to be previewed in New Twitter’s right-side pane.

For those whom have so far found Ping boring and too closed off from society, this new partnership gives you a reason to check it out once more. I for one will give it another shot now that it has a sort of Last.fm-esque sharing/social ability to it — because I love last.fm. Anyone else open to giving Ping another try?
