Twitter May Start Charging

The bosses at social networking website Twitter are planning to charge companies and corporates for tweetering in the near future. After turning down a buy out deal from Facebook it appears that Twitter could now be making changes to their business model to capitalise on the growing number of users.

It'll be interesting to see if bloggers and small independent companies, who regularly use Twitter as a promotional and advertising tool, will escape the charges. And how will they differentiate? Richard Branson and Stephen Fry both use Twitter as individuals, but continue to promote their latest activities and events, as do a whole host of glamour models, celebrities, writers and singers. Will Twitter class them as corporates and businesses too? STORY HERE
