With real-time search being rolled out, I asked questions about how Twitter would be able to handle the volume. I don’t want to see the “Twitter is over-capacity” whale in Google results!
But however they’re handling it, it looks like Twitter finally made some money by opening their tweets to Google (at the cost of about $15 million) and MSN (at the cost of about $10 million). Beats the hell out of the limited calls us regular folks get!
I was so sure it was going to be the Paypal-esque money transferring model first. At least it wasn’t as cheesey as buying and sending virtual gifts for a dollar (I don’t care if it worked, Facebook – it’s cheesey!).
