Super Chirp

Twitter is still getting ever more popular among people who thrive on updated info about others. For a very popular service on the Web, it seems quite surprising that the people who run the website still haven’t found a way to generate revenue from it. The popularity of Twitter has made it an interesting service that still gets many attractive investors. But how long will this arrangement keep up?

There are a lot of opportunities that Twitter can take advantage of which may help provide their service with possible revenues. It’s too bad that others may have already beaten them to the punch. There is a website named Super Chirp that might have some Twitter revenue potential on their hands.

Super Chirp aims to create revenue potential to avid Twitters by having their subscribers get access to their Tweets for a certain fee. Through Super Chirp, people are allowed to send "chirps", as what the service calls it, to paying monthly subscribers as direct messages.

It is a kind of idea that is so simple and yet so hard to determine if it succeeds or not. But it is also a kind of opportunity that is just too good to pass up. Imagine having a Twitter account with about a thousand or so subscribers. If you are interesting enough to follow on Twitter, there would be a couple or more who might be willing to subscribe for either $0.99 or $9.99 on a monthly basis. Celebrities are usually the ones who come to mind who can take advantage of this type of revenue stream with their millions of followers and fans on their Twitter.

For some, what Super Chirp is doing might be a long shot, but there is quite a potential to it. It may take such a service to let Twitter find ways in which it may ultimately generate profits from its service. Twitter itself may find other ways to generate revenue in the future, but this seems to be one of the more workable means today. Too bad, it is not Twitter who may have thought of it first.
