Show Us the Money

Maybe it’s just me but the relentless and incessant chatter about Twitter’s business model – or lack thereof – is starting to get tired/amusing.

The company should charge super-users, place ads on or charge for premium services. For a company that just raised $15-million in venture capital, Twitter has no lack of people happily willing to offer it financial advice.

Stepping back, it is interesting that services such as Twitter and Friendfeed have exploded with little hint of a business model. It just goes to show that the build it and they will come…and then we can create a business model is still alive and well.

For what it’s worth, Steve Rubel has some thoughts on Friendfeed’s business model, while Dan Farber suggests people who love Twitter and use it a lot, pay for it.
