Thought of the Day, Dec 18, 2008

How ironic that Twitter is having such trouble creating a viable business model when so many others are making money from the service. Twitter helps brands save money by allowing cheaper promotions and fewer support calls or emails. Third party apps are using the API and making money on subscription fees or ad revenue. Authors are making money blogging about Twitter or writing books. Blogger Marshall Kirkpatrick claims Twitter is paying his rent by giving him story leads that he turns into paid articles. Now, if only Twitter management had it so easy…

“People laugh at Twitter, and they can go ahead and laugh for all I care, but I’m here to tell you that it can be invaluable. Aside from the personal connectedness and relationship maintenance it’s good for, let’s be honest – it’s paying my rent.”

— Marshall Kirkpatrick
