Rumors have been swirling that Twitter will soon be charging companies for their accounts. But charge for what exactly?

Twitter is essentially a Facebook status message and Facebook allows more characters. Won’t companies just drop Twitter like a bad habit? We think so. And then will that force Twitter to charge the average Joe? We hope not, but if they do, will you pay to tweet?

Mr. Yu helped the friend-finding site get its 2007 estimated value of $15 billion. Before Facebook, he served as an executive at Yahoo and helped You Tube sell to Google. Mr. Yu, it’s time for you to get IntheGlo!
