Twitter News Service? Why not, Biz Stone says


SOONER OR LATER, Twitter will do something with news network –but with different approach. It receives almost 100 million tweets each day from its 175 million users, a report says. Actually, Twiter has shared these feeds with Google, Yahoo! and Bing –and eager to jump to the next level.

Biz Stone, the co-founder of popular microblogging site Twitter, is eager to harness the vast quantities of information that it helps its users share to create a news network, he told Reuters on Monday.

A Twitter news network would not necessarily be run by Twitter itself but would be in partnership with several existing news organizations, and would be open, Stone said.

Hmmm. It’s an interesting business model, I guess.
