No Ads in Plan for Twitter

Susan Hall

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said Monday that the company doesn't plan to include advertising in its business model at all, reports Reuters. Instead, it's focusing on add-on tools and services for business and professional users.


Stone said ads would just annoy users and the company just doesn't find advertising all that interesting.


Network World quotes Stone saying of the push to make money:
