Paid Twitter Accounts On The Way?

Labels: , , ,

At first, paid Twitter accounts used to be just a hoax / scam, but Twitter co-founder, Biz Stone, has mentioned that they are looking to launch their own "fee-based services this year." Like Last.fm, Twitter has come into realization that they aren't making as much money as they expect / want to. There are many services that are selling their 'tweets' or ads right now. "German start-up Magpie & Friends has started paying users for the right to sell ads in their tweets." Mashable's Chief Executive, Pete Cashmore, has even mentioned that "it's kind of ironic that we're monetizing Twitter before Twitter." Twitter's popularity is skyrocketing and fee-based accounts do make sense. I'm just wondering what advantages a paid account will have over a free account.
