According to Mashable, SPIN will now do all of its reviews on Twitter, removing most of the reviews from the magazine itself:
Long-winded music reviews are getting a tune up. SPIN announced on Wednesday that it will be squeezing the majority of its album reviews into 140-character tweets.
SPIN is pulling most of the reviews out of its print magazine and will be tweeting them instead under the handle @SPINreviews.
Senior editor Chris Weingarten told Mashable that about 120 of the 140 albums the publication plans to review each month in short form on Twitter. Long-form reviews will be saved for albums SPIN believes are the best and most newsworthy. In total, it plans to cover a total of 1,500 new records this year, all reviewed by its eight in-house editors and a team of a dozen freelancers.
