I brainstormed a few ideas for business models for Twitter at my other blog the other day. Here’s an idea from it that I think is of interest to readers of this blog:
Twitter could become a virtual free bank, offering their own digital currency that can be traded through Twitter. Give a certain amount of starting credits to verified users, and let the market determine the actual value. Hey, maybe if they limit the number of tweets per day they could make “tweet credits” tradable – a la cell phone minutes in Africa.
I thought I’d also plug this old article as well: Four other Big Brothers.
