The question is, what feature would you be willing to pay for? Personally, I don’t think there are any Twitter-native features that I would see enough benefit to pay for. I just don’t see where it would matter much to the way I use the service. But, I might consider paying for Tweetdeck. For anyone managing multiple accounts or trying to following certain topics, or take part in a Twitter chat, there is nothing better. I would pay Twitter something for the continued use of it. But, there’s a caveat.
If they really want to charge for Tweetdeck, it needs to be treated like a commercial product. Since they brought it in years ago, Twitter has basically just left it sitting on the shelf. There hasn’t been a lot of development, there’s no longer an iOS app, and some native Twitter features, like deleting a tweet, aren’t integrated with Tweetdeck. So, if you’re looking to make some money by charging for Tweetdeck, I get it, but I’m gonna need a little more effort from you Twitter.
On the other hand, because it’s been sitting on a shelf all these years, it also still shows every timeline in chronological order. Mess with that, and I might just start using Twitter less and less.
Is there anything that Twitter could offer you that you would pay for?
