I noticed a short piece about how the owners of twitter hope to make some money out of the concept that has taken hold in the hearts of portable device addicts:
To that end, Stone said Twitter aims to offer premium features for commercial account users this year.
“We wanted to show people that we’re here to stay and here we are making money,” Stone said.
Those features, which could debut in test form, are envisioned as for-pay features and potentially could include “light analytics” tools that allow commercial users to gather data on their followers, he said.
Hmm when a Tram driver gives multiple updates on the self pleasuring regime you can bet that purveyors of Porn are going to be interested in doing some “light analytics” of his twitter feed. But then again his employers may well take notice of it as well when he tweets while on the company dollar. There is a downside to telling all on the net…
This post has been edited to reflect the fact that Andy tells me in the comemnts that the trams are run by a private comapany and not by the government. Further Andy has now protected his tweets just to stop little old me reading them, Ah well we can thank the Lord for small mercies.
