For some time people have been asking, how will Twitter make money? Apart from advertising what else is on the horizon for Twitter? It would seem that T Commerce might be one option.
Here are a couple of examples he gives:
“When the Google IO conference was taking place, they tweeted the morning of the opening of the conference, ‘Hey, you know, 100 tickets left, 550 bucks a piece, use this promotion code,’ and then I think 11 minutes later tweeted, ‘Sold them, thank you,’ you know, $55,000 with one tweet in 13 minutes.”
“The San Diego Chargers tweeted on a Saturday afternoon, ‘We need to sell a thousand more tickets so the blackout can be lifted in San Diego tomorrow,’ and 40 minutes later tweeted — or I think 40 minutes later or so tweeted, ‘Sold those’.”
If they can grab a share of a sales tweet the future of the company should be rosy.Click on the image above to view the video
