AOL has unofficially announced it's shuttering several of its music-related editorial units, through the Twitter feeds of several employees who were laid off Friday afternoon. Properties including Spinner.com, The Boombox, and Noisecreep have effectively ceased operations.
Just lost my job. Actually I'm in the room losing it right this second, while tweeting. So yeah, hit me with any opportunities.— PaulCantor (@PaulCantor) April 26, 2013
