An open letter to Biz Stone, co-founder, Twitter:
I’m sure you appreciate the intense, burning interest that people have in how Twitter is going to make money. After all, you’ve got more than 50 million users, which has caused the monetization buzz to get more increasingly feverish the more popular that Twitter becomes.
But can you do me a favour: please stop talking about how Twitter is going to be announcing a business model soon. It’s an act that, frankly, has grown tired because it keeps repeating itself.
Yes, I understand that you’ve got to answer the “money” question every time you do an interview, but the thing is you keep giving interviews so they keep asking the money question. It’s a vicious circle that’s become more vicious.
That said, it seems that you have a hard time not playing the game, so when you appeared on TV last week, you declared Twitter will unveil a business model in the next month.
Is this a tease or do you really mean it? The problem is no one is sure whether Twitter will actually announce a business model because we’ve been led down this path before only to be disappointed.
I’m hoping this time you mean it but time will tell.
