Thought I know not everyone would agree with that assessment, the folks behind newly built website Twittertakemymoney.com have come to the conclusion that Twitter has 99 problems and monetization is a bitch.
Self-reportedly “totally befuddled” by Twitter’s recent moves, three helpful people (Drew Inglis, Patrick Perini and Tess Rinearson) have joined hands to make Twittertakemymoney.com and let people express – and tweet – how much they’d fork over per month in exchange for personal Twitter analytics.
Of course, I highly doubt Twitter’s business model will ever revolve around charging users for anything, let alone personal stats, and saying you’ll pay this or that is way different from effectively coughing up cash.
Nevertheless, this is a slightly better way to ask Twitter to “lighten up on third party clients” than loudly voicing complaints (on Twitter no less) without offering any alternatives or well-intended advice.
Obligatory mention with obligatory disclaimer: The Next Web’s founders are behind a neat service called Twitter Counter, which offers – you guessed it – personal Twitter analytics. Better yet, it’s free for the basic stuff.
