According to the recent interview to BBC News, Evan Williams, the co-founder of Twitter said that social networking is the basic way of communication now-a-days with businesses, Government and loved one. He also added that the perspective of Twitter is to expand in those area where technology is limited or very simple. The Twitter chief continued that open exchange of information is the only way for free communication where freedom of speech is restricted and it has positive effect around the world because open exchange forum will prevail worldwide. Twitter doesn’t have any plan to charge customer in the near future.
He further reiterated that that most of the competitive services are independent. That’s why they rejected an offer for $300 million to $400 million buyout plan from Facebook. Twitter also survived a deal from Google and Microsoft to list the “Tweets” in their search results. The company continues to work on technology that can change things and at the same time very exciting and motivating. Motivation is not the only thing to make their websites very popular. The company always focus to find a way so that they can make money from the business because they have to pay for the employees and servers.
“What we want to do is build something into the product that makes us money and makes the product better. And the more people that use Twitter, the more money we make, the better we can make Twitter”
Mr Williams is very excited because big name like Oprah Winfrey, Whitehouse press secretary Robert Gibbs signed up for twtter. The White House has acknowledged the importance of Twitter and it recently announced that they are going to archive its tweets in accordance with the Presidential Records Act of 1978. Mr Williams continued, “I think it will be how you get personal, customized information from every entity you care about, from your local cafe to your government, from your politician to your friends and family.”
