After premiering nearly a month ago, the initial success of Apples Beats 1 Radio Station can begin to be analysed. In evaluating its success there is no better way than to look at the people that use the service's reception. Over twitter people tend not to hold back on their opinions so it gives an interesting insight into how the new online station has been received...
Beats 1 totally sucks. To the max— Dustin (@dustinzD) July 24, 2015
Apple Beats 1 Radio would've been alright except for all the crappy music it plays 24/7. #sucks— Kiko Navarro (@Kikko_Navarro) July 23, 2015
Beats 1 apple radio can eat my shorts— suavecito (@hyacinthwitch) July 12, 2015
So beats 1 is basically just radio. And I fucking hate radio lol— waffles (@wafflesmedia) July 13, 2015
Sporadically disappointed listeners do head to twitter to vent disappointment however it is crazy by how much the positive reception shared over the social network outweighs this. A few also give interesting views on the concept of the 'Global' radio station not quite living up to what it promised; being restricted mainly to music from the UK and US.

Beats 1 is the most important part of Apple Music, and the most important thing in radio right now. It's making radio amazing again!— Cameron (@camwallen) July 3, 2015
Beats 1 is like Radio 1 but without all the crap. Less talking and more music. How radio should be.— Will (@wm86) July 1, 2015
As much as I love Apple, I am weary of articles claiming that Beats 1 invented something new by having live DJs. It's…just the radio.— Elan Samuel (@bonbonelan) July 10, 2015

Its worth checking out the service yourself if you haven't yet and do head over to twitter to vent your feelings even if it makes you want to 'eat your own shorts'.
