Twitter revenue model: 2.0?

18/05/2009

The funky microblogging social app could be close to unlocking a massive revenue stream thanks to mobile operators, writes Reuters. Twitter's co-founder Biz Stone this week confirmed they are not introducing advertising, but instead are evaluating revenue-share deals with mobile carriers. The Twitter app allows live updates to be sent from and to mobile phones through SMS, giving a ready-made pathway for micropayments. The model has already been copied by Facebook and our take is that LinkedIn, MySpace and Bebo will all follow whichever approach Twitter settles on. As mobile operators look for new ways to charge data, this model is sure to find powerful allies.
