Twitter announced today that iTunes new Social network Ping can now tweet your activity on Twitter. Starting today Ping you can put song previews and links to purchase and download music from the iTunes Store right in their Tweets on Twitter.com.

Twitter says that 95 million tweets are sent out per day and many of them are about music. That it is why it makes sense to connect Ping.

MacRumors points out that Apple already owns a domain ideal for shortened iTunes URLs called iTun.es. Apple owns this domain apparently already since 2006. If it will be used for the tweets from Ping is not known yet. Right now the tweets include not shortened iTunes URL which needs changing soon.

In general it will be interesting when Steve Jobs will talk about Ping adoption number again. When it launched Apple was pretty quick to tell there are 1 million Ping users. I am not one of them.
