Monetize the Twitter API
JANUARY 30, 2009
Silicon Alley Insider recently announced The Create a Twitter Revenue Model contest. I decided to throw together an entry and today SAI has picked it as one of the finalists. So I thought I would write a blog post summarizing my submission. Thinking about business models for Twitter is always a fun exercise. I see Twitter as the epitome of web 2.0 - a sticky communication app with few differentiated user segments, minimal expressed interest, and no purchase intent.
