It had to come sooner than later the micro blogging site Twitter has decided to start charging for tweets, but only tweets that contain vowels! This premium service will cost just $5 (£3.30) per month for unlimited tweets, however, there is the free option of Twttr, this site allows the same service as Twitter but with the one exception that Tweets must not contain any vowels at all! What do you think about this service, are you a #Twitter or #Twttr?
According to the official Twitter Blog, this is what Twttr is all about;
Starting today, we are shifting to a two-tiered service: Everyone can use our basic service, Twttr, but you only get consonants. For five dollars a month, you can use our premium “Twitter” service, which also includes vowels.
We’re doing this because we believe that by eliminating vowels, we’ll encourage a more efficient and “dense” form of communication. We also see an opportunity to diversify our revenue stream.
So, will you be going with the Twitter fee based tweets or Twttr the free service, #Aprilfool would cost you $5 (£3.30) but #prlfl would be free!
