Why I care how Twitter makes money

My concerns with Twitter’s business model are personal.

Today there was yet more talk about Twitter’s business model, this time on the O’Reilly site. Sarah Milstein wonders why I care how Twitter makes money.

Frankly, my reason is simple and selfish. I like Twitter. I’ve found it to be among the most valuable of my personal networking tools. It’s my first-to-ask group when I need something — whether it be advice on Nashville traffic or how to install a content management system. So yes, the Twitter business model matters to me — I want the service to succeed.
