Twitter has revealed plans to begin generating revenue during the fourth quarter of this year. The initial premium features will be available for businesses.
Such features could include analytics to help companies track tweets about their company or verified corporate accounts.
Twitter reached 20.1 million users this past June.
Of course, Twitter will want to keep working on its security and downtime issues if it wants to charge businesses for premium services. Today, there was downtime likely related to a major Apple event (not the first time that's happened). Recently, Twitter succumbed to a cybersecurity attack.
