Re: Twitter should pay us
On a personal level, I like Twitter better than Facebook. I believe that the people who follow me on Twitter are interested in the things that I am. That's why they follow me. On Facebook, that's not always true. Zuckerberg has long said that Facebook is a resource for people to share with friends things that they like. But I don't always agree with that business model.
On the business side, I think that Twitter should charge for high-traffic accounts. Those users are getting mass exposure via the platform, and that has a ton of value. But I'm not sure that is the holistic answer to Twitter's problems.
Twitter should be cognizant of what needs to be done to make money on its platform; if not, the company shouldn't have gone public.
