Paid Twitter services coming by year’s end | Web Services | Macworld: “Twitter is steering clear of advertising as it prepares to launch new tools and services for businesses by the end of this year, company cofounder Biz Stone said Monday.


The company is developing tools and services that it might be able to offer on top of Twitter’s free microblogging service, he said in a videotaped interview at a Reuters event.

…Stone said Twitter has hired a full-time product manager to analyze how it should develop paid services and suggested the company could sell “lightweight analytics” data to corporate users or perhaps a paid directory where it lists legitimate corporate Twitter accounts.
