Mahalo CEO Jason Calacanis has offered Twitter $250,000 to appear in the suggested users area that newly signed up members see when they first join Twitter.
TechCrunch confirmed the offer with Twitter and pointed out the value of the spots could be substantial. People on the list can gain 10,000 new users a day or 3.6 million a year.
Calacanis sees the power of Twitter growing over the next 5 years and has offered $120,000 a year for a spot and said he would pay $250,000 for 2 years in advance. He also said he would be willing to limit his twits to his followers to 10 a day to avoid accusations of spamming.
Nice to see a value put on something on Twitter.
