Twestival for Twits or a Service Worth Celebrating?

Posted by in Social Media & Online PR on February 12th, 2009 0 Comments

Twitter, the micro-blogging phenomenon, has achieved a frantic amount of press recently thanks largely to the likes of high profile TV presenters such as Jonathon Ross and Stephen Fry utilising the service and updating their following fans (in the thousands) via Tweets.

Today is the date of Twestival, the 24-hour global Twitter fest that aims to raise $1million for charity:water, a noble cause indeed but what bewilders me is how Twitter makes any money for the maintenance and running of its service in the first place. The $20million of funding from various investors around the world certainly helped but they’re going to want to see some ROI fairly soon. So how is Twitter going to become a bread winner?
