He tweeted “#AppleMusic will pay artist for streaming, even during customer’s free trial period”, then in another tweet said this… “We hear you @taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple”.
Taylor Swift responded in a tweet later (yes, that’s how business and communication gets done now, by Twitter) with this…
