Saving Twitter from Oblivion
Today Twitter has 284 million active users who send 500 million tweets every day. Who knew? So far it's all FREE!
According to our records, Denny Hatch, you have 746 followers. If you were to contact those 746 followers by snail mail—at 50¢ a pop—your cost would be $373 each time. To email them individually would cost you valuable time. With Twitter, you simply bang out your short item and click "TWEET."
To make Twitter financially viable for the future, I am asking you become a lifetime member for a nickel and to pay a just penny a tweet. Incidentally, the folks who receive your tweets pay nothing.
Nothing like this has ever existed in the history of communications—from the days of smoke signals to the present.
Don't take a chance on losing your loyal claque of 746 followers.
P.S. So long as I am CEO, you have my personal guarantee the price-per-tweet will never be raised over 1¢. What's more, no matter how many followers you have, they will pay nothing to hear from you.
Takeaways to Consider
- At last we have a medium (the Internet) where it's possible to charge pennies for services, receive payment instantly and make a lot of money.
- In June 2012, I wrote a Famous Last Words titled, "I'll Happily Pay for Email." It generated more comments (both pro and con) retweets and thumbs-ups than any column before or since. Click here to see it.
- Will the penny-a-tweet idea generate as much response?
- While I'm at it, let's make traders on the 31 U.S. financial exchanges—stock, bond, commodity, etc.—pay 1¢ a trade and use the money to clean up the nation's infrastructure. For example, 63,000 bridges are in desperate need of repair. Without sound infrastructure the economy (and the stock markets) will collapse. And think of the jobs this would create!
Denny Hatch's new book is Write Everything Right!
***** Five Stars The best part is that this book is not just for authors, journalists, and other professional writers, it is for everyone. After all, everyone uses writing in some part of their lives and the way that you write reflects you as a person. Hatch provides you with a ton of tips that will help you turn your writing into something that people will be sure to read —Scott
