I confess, I love Twitter. At first I didn’t get it and my friend Jane practically browbeat me into using it. Now I check it loads of times every day to keep up with what friends and fellow bloggers are doing, saying, reading.
But is it just a fad, like some of its detractors say? Maybe. But one thing a recent study showed: people don’t want to pay for it.
The prestigious University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication found in a study with almost 2,000 participants that no one is willing to pay for Twitter. Tough crowd.
I’m not sure I would pay for it either. Maybe £1 a month would be acceptable. But you can bet that as soon as Twitter started charging, someone would come up with a platform for using Facebook’s status updates or something similar as a substitute version.
What do you think? Would you pay for Twitter?
