Twitter, the company worth billions already that has not made a dime yet, has finally decided to unleash its financial whale within through paid services for business accounts:
“This takes advantage of some of the commercial use of Twitter we’ve seen from businesses like airlines and big box stores,” said Stone. “We want to present to them a layer of features that allows them to become better at Twitter, show them some of the analytics.”
Twitter, which is valued at around $1 billion, has yet to settle on a business model for the service, and paid-for business accounts will provide a welcome revenue stream for the microblogging platform.
This certainly is great news for Twitter and alike, and also, Twitter seems very likely to be included in future searches on major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
Last month, Twitter signed deals with Google and Microsoft Bing to integrate its real-time search results in to both search engines.
