Twitter: We'll teach you how to make money tweeting with Twitter 101


Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said his company, oft-criticized for not generating much revenue, will prove the nay-sayers wrong by "adding value." Speaking at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference in Pasadena, California Thursday, Stone elaborated more than he has publicly on the company's plans to make money with the service. "The first step," is by "launching an educational sub-site called Twitter 101," which will help companies and users figure out how to use Twitter.

Monetizing real-time search appears to be a way Twitter plans to make money. Whatever other means the company will use, it will make money this year, Stone said. Twitter 101, launched late Thursday, is "sort of a phase one," of the revenue generating process, he told the audience.
