Twitter Revenue Stream Begins With ExecTweets
Twitter is finally tapping into a revenue trickle: It will offer promotional space to "ExecTweets," a Web site that aggregates tweets from business executives, organized by ad network Federated Media. Microsoft (MSFT) is sponsoring ExecTweets, and FM will share some of that ad revenue with Twitter.
Is this going to make Twitter profitable overnight? No. But that's not the point.
