Twitter First Revenue to Come From Commercial API’s…

Yes, Twitter will start earning some income this year.

Co-founder Biz Stone said the company is in the first phase of rolling out commercial accounts that will entice business users to pay for premium services like detailed analytics. After that, the company might move into building business-oriented application programming interfaces (APIs), creating a “commercial layer” over the social network. The commercial APIs would be out “later this year,” he said.

KDYKES: No surprise to many of us who’ve been speculating on their revenue plans – commercial API’s with added functionality for people/co’s willing to pay. Surprise, surprise – they’ll use their massive network of distributors (API clients) to support massive revenue. See, get how the API business development model can work.
