27 May 2014, 17:00 | Written by Robby Ritacco

​Back in March, Billboard and Twitter announced that they were partnering up for the Billboard Twitter Real-Time Charts. Today, they’ve officially launched their “Trending 140” and “Emerging Artists” charts.

The charts give up-to-the-minute rankings of songs and artists as they’re shared on Twitter. ​As Billboard’s website explains:

The first of the real-time charts, the Billboard Trending 140, is an up to the minute ranking of songs shared in the U.S., measured by acceleration over the past hour. This chart can be filtered to present a real-time view of the most shared track in the U.S. over the past 24 hours, with a weekly summary presented as the Billboard Twitter Top Tracks chart on and in print in Billboard.

The Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists chart is a ranking of the most shared songs on Twitter in the U.S. by up-and-coming artists ranked by the number of times each song was shared over the past 24 hours. Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists is presented as a seven-day/weekly round up on and in print in Billboard.

You can check out the Trending 140 chart here, and Emerging Artists here.
