And what’s in a verified name? Well, for one thing, as evidenced above, you get your own avatar. Neat. Also, probably an unofficial benefit, but one of the strangest-looking and acting things on the internet right now?
The other most recent Turntable adopters was Birkenstock-rock band Guster, who premiered an entire album on it. Also, someone called Dead Mouse? Rich Hil has yet to approach the music-sharing service, but given the new echelon of fame he achieved today, it’s obviously happening in no time.
Talib has been a constant presence on the service for a while, spinning sets with celeb DJs like No ID that routinely drew a packed crowd (we just got turned away at the lobby, fire code violation).
In other news, people still use Turntable.fm.
