Twitter home page

Microblogging/ micronews service Twitter might not be making any money yet (and turning down $600M buyout offers), but Dell Computers apparently has managed to monetize Twitter use for themselves – to the tune of $1M. They’ve done this over the past year and a half using Twitter to send out sales alerts to their “followers.”

Given that news, don’t be surprised if Twitter soon monetizes by offering premium/ business accounts with more features – for a price. They probably needed proof of concept before they can roll out such an offering. (That is, would there be any incentive for anyone to want to pay for Twitter?)
