Billboard, Twitter partner to launch chart of most tweeted songs

  • PayPal reported quarterly earnings way above Wall Street expectations on Wednesday. Sales grew almost 30% to over $6 billion. The boost in spending is driven in part by a surge in bitcoin transactions, which PayPal recently introduced.
  • Jessica Alba’s Honest Company had a successful NASDAQ debut. Shares of the company are at $23, which is 43% higher than its original IPO price. The company raked in more than $230 million in revenue in the 2020 fiscal year,  27% more than the year before.
  • Billboard’s top music charts are coming to social media. Twitter is partnering with the magazine to launch a curated chart of the most tweeted songs. The ranking will list songs that are tending on the platform, which is different from Billboard’s typical ranking system that considers how often a song is played.
