Repeat After Me: Revenue Generation

Personally, I’m getting tired of the when will Twitter generate revenue question given it’s been going on for so long.

That said, there are signs Twitter is moving forward with its monetization plans with plans to hire a product manager. The key words in the product description are “revenue generation”, which suggests Twitter is serious about finally making money (Note: Tongue firmly in cheek!)

Here’s the job description for anyone interested in applying:
