on: twitter’s fifth b-day

Five years ago today Jack Dorsey sent the first ever tweet. Little did he know that five years later users from across the globe, and some in outer space, would churn out a billion tweets just seven days.

To mark the fifth anniversary Twitter has made their incredible figures public:

  • One year ago, an average of 50,000,000 tweets were sent a day. At present, that figure rests somewhere around 140,000,000
  • 572,000 new accounts were created on the 12th of March 2011
  • On March 11th 2011, 177 million tweets were sent in one day

Can you remember what your first tweet was?

ON: Twitter’s New Cash for Corp. Conversations

Nothing stays free forever.  Nor should it!  Twitter is planning to charge brands for using the micro-blogging website.  Biz Stone told Marketing Mag: 'We are noticing more companies using Twitter
and individuals following them. We can identify ways to make this
experience even more valuable and charge for commercial accounts.'

Since Twitter launched in 2006 it has been searching for a way to make money.  This powerful conversation eco-system is serving as a place where people are listening and giving corporations input on everything from product launches to service outages. 

As an avid user of the platform I often pondered how this incredibly flexible ecosystem was making money.  I came of age during the Web 1.0 boom & bust.  Remember all those peer-to-peer shops?  Who doesn't?  Why did most fail? Not from lack of creativity. It was simply because they were not making money.

Today's economic climate is no different.  Making cash, when there is no credit, is the most important thing any Web 2.0 company can do.  It is not enough to host user data unles it is netting you a profit.

Twitter should charge anyone using the site for commecial purposes a fee.  Its silly not to.  MySpace & YouTube do.

In a world where "loyalty" is dead - the big question is - what is a conversation worth to your company/product/service if your able to keep a customer engaged?

ON: Snitter

Picture_6
If you twitter - you need Snitter !  Mac / PC no matter. 
The newest version works with both. 

The application runs on Adobe AIR, and you’ll need to download it in order to enjoy all of its features. It very much resembles an instant messaging client. 

To download the latest version (the dev beta kicks the dec 25th verion's ass) go to http://snook.ca/testing/snitter-27.air
