Quick Hits: Tech, telecoms, and Twitter

Brief news items and worthy reads from around the web:

Tech and telecoms: We regularly write about how telecoms have an impact on music platforms and streaming services. Today, the New York Times profiled the love-hate relationship between telecoms and tech companies.

Twitter music exec to exit: Twitter’s head of music is departing the social media company. Bob Moczydlowsky tweeted that he is exiting, and although he didn’t give details about his next steps, he hinted that he does have a something planned. The Twitter #Music program never really took off for the network, and losing the music branch’s leader doesn’t bode so well for future endeavors in that field.
