Google is letting musicians post Twitter-like updates directly in search results

Google Search enables twitter like feature for US musicians

Twitter-like Google 'Posts' in Search results expand to musicians

Today, Google announces that Google Posts are now available to musicians so fans can follow them the same way.

When you look up one of these musicians, you'll find updates from them in their Search results, inside their Knowledge Panel. Once done, they can make posts that will show in Google Search results. Google is now giving musicians the space on the Search results to update their fans about all of their projects, new releases and latest news.

Google is initially rolling this feature out to select musicians in the pop and electronic dance music genres. Musicians can also get the "Blue Tick" that would verify that the posts are truly from the artist.

First, do a Google search for the name you want to claim, click on the little sentence under the Knowledge Panel asking if you manage the online presence, and follow the instructions. Below that, you see the Wikipedia snippet, and then the Google Posts that the artist shared with their fans.

In short, musicians who are authorized can post things into their knowledge panel through Google Posts, similar to how Google My Business supports Google Posts.
