Twitter May Promote User Accounts For a Fee
Advertisement
#1
You're in luck: Twitter is apparently considering a promotional offering where users would pay to have their accounts promoted on the website. It's not exactly clear how it would work, and whether the user would pay per added follower or a base rate akin to ad impressions.

All Things Digital's Peter Kafka reports that the move is only in the discussion phase, and Twitter is refusing to to confirm it even exists, saying "We will eventually have full suites of both promoted and commercial products." (See also "5 Top Twitter Apps for Business Users.")

Traditionally Twitter has frowned upon efforts to boost follower counts other than by traditional methods. Even so, there are several companies out there charging tweeters to get them more followers. With Twitter needing ways to make money, the site may see this as one way to do it. But as Mr. Kafka asks, "What, exactly, is the value of a Twitter follower?"
