Technology company and musicians – a love relationship

I just looked at the (German) Wikipedia page of Twitter and found this table there. It’s pretty self-explanatory, so I don’t think the German matters.

What I find interesting is, that 7 (!) out of the top 10 accounts with the most followers are from musicians. And the tech world keeps telling musicians that their work is a commodity and treats it as basically worthless. Better yet: they™   run a huge campaign to effectively undermine every effort to create a level playing field in the digital world.

But thinking a little longer about this I can sort of understand: it must be a terrible feeling that there are people out there who manage to deeply touch and affect people with a simple song.
