While the revised Twitter has certainly been a huge hit with users, its also been interesting to see some of the efforts Twitter has gone to in an attempt to create a legitimate revenue stream.
Twitter is apparently going to be allowing businesses to pay to be included in a relevant “who to follow” list.
Another idea is the promoted tweets which have been rumored to be selling for 100K – I noticed this afternoon that the placement of these tweets has moved up from last position to first – interesting indeed.
But probably the biggest item supposedly coming up in 2011 is Twitter is launching a self serve advertising platform. I predict it is going to be HUGE!
One idea which apparently is getting tabled is the promoted tweet stream that featured sponsored deals. I guess they can’t all be home runs.
