Quote of the Day, Dec 16, 2008
How to monetize Twitter has been a favorite topic among the Twitterati, and one that shows no signs of reaching a conclusion any time soon. How ironic then, that many have found ways to make money from Twitter, or at least use it in ways that build brand awareness or provide customer support. But then, if we understand that Twitter is a tool, this makes sense. It’s easier to make money with a hammer by banging in nails than it is to make money from selling hammers.
“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
