This study by the Pew Internet & American Life project shows that as of December 2008, 11% of American adults on-line use the micro-blogging service Twitter. But as Twitter grows, how will it turn itself into a viable, profitable business. Yesterday was April Fools Day and Wired Magazine tweeted about Twitter Inc.'s plan to make money. Har. But it cuts to the relevant issue that these services, not just limited to Twitter, which we all use and take for granted, are not generating huge revenue, nor are they operating sustainably. An astute individual would understand that Twitter will not be around forever. It is a potent tool to use right now, but it will drop off at some point, and some newer, better, more innovating tool will emerge. Our job is to know what to adopt, and what to drop it.
