This makes me wondering how long twitter will last, under current economic condition? Twitter and what twitter represents are considered a revolutionary way of communication, expressing, going social and killing blogs. However, there is no sigh of how twitter can monetize its service, nor the twitter users to monetize from it. After all, money is the fuel to propel and sustain a business and people who doing business with, and investers’ packets. Free loading will have an end, sooner or later, sadly.

    This is what everybody has been tweeting about. It is surprising why Six Apart would acquire Pounce and immediately close shop.

    I feel more optimistic about Twitter’s survival. Though it hasn’t yet monetized the service, I don’t think it is very difficult. A naive way would itself be having Google ads on each user’s page. The hash pages are so frequently updated and visited.
