Twitter Profitable After Deals With Microsoft And Bing
In a deal signed in October, Twitter agreed to allow the search engines Google and Bing to feature search results containing tweets. This is Twitter"s first major breakthrough in profitability and the deal is said to have been for $25 million, which is not bad considering the site was started in March of 2006 as a side project. At first, Twitter was more focused on adding subscribers rather than generating a profit, and today, there are over 20 million Twitter users in the US alone! If you haven"t already, I strongly encourage you to create a Twitter account today. Not only is it a great social media tool, it is also a great way of driving traffic to your blog or website.
