It seems that Twitter is thinking of the possibility of charging money for the services it offers. At
The Wall Street Journal’s D: All Things Digital conference, on Tuesday, Twitter co-founders Biz Stone and Evan Williams said that the rapidly growing online communications company will eventually charge fees for its services, but it’s unclear which ones and what will drive revenue.
“There will be a moment when you can fill out a form or something and give us money,” said Evan Williams, in response to the questions by journalists Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher at the opening night keynote of the conference.
They mentioned possible revenue-generators, including a service that would authenticate the source of information, according to an AP report. However, they refused to give any clear picture of Twitter’s business model.
Though the company is opposed to banner advertising, Willaims said they were not enthusiastic about it. “I think it’s probably the least interesting thing we could do,” he said.
Then, how they are going to survive? That’s the mystery which the co-founders only can unravel.
