Beginning this January, Twitter Japan is allegedly planning to charge micropayments for access to tweets from premium accounts. Users will be charged on a monthly basis, and the bills will potentially be attached to mobile phone bills. This is another way Twitter could generate profit, second to the deals with search engines like Google and Bing.
So who cares what’s going on with Twitter in Japan? Emma Barnett of the Telegraph wrote:
“The Japanese version of Twitter has acted as a testbed for the company having previously launched products, such as a video-sharing service, exclusively in that country.”
Now do you care?
