How Does Twitter Make Money?

  • calendar Last Updated

Twitter as a social networking platform allows users to “tweet,” or share short messages with each other. Founded in 2006, Twitter does not need introductions. Its founder, Jack Dorsey, famously tweeted “just setting up my twttr” on the microblogging site as its first tweet years back.

The future of Twitter looks promising as the company is continuously innovating and experimenting with new revenue sources. Though it seems not comparable to other social networks giants like Facebook and Google in terms of revenue generation, it can still make money through Twitter’s advertising revenue and data licensing.

Twitter’s large user base and rich data are its most valuable assets that can be monetized in the future. So, higher revenues and profits can be expected in the coming years as Twitter finds more ways to monetize its platform.
