Billboard, the king of music charts, is publishing a ranking of the most popular songs in the U.S. based on a brand new metric: Twitter conversations. 

Billboard will update the chart everyday, and will also write stories and record video around the data that will appear on both its website and Twitter. Advertisers can pay to sponsor the chart, called “the Billboard Hot Trending Powered by Twitter,” or buy sponsorships within the videos and articles made around the charts.
