    I think they are hoping Google or Yahoo are going to step in at some stage and offer them 500 gazillion for the business.

    Twitter is making money. You just don't know about it.

    #1: They exploit their users the same way you do, except they don't get flagged.

    #2: Twitter is a real-time-tracking-bot-training program. When twitter makes money, you won't like it, and you won't be able to stop it.

    Would You care to elaborate and perhaps share the sources that you got this information from or are you just making empty unsubstantiated statements?

    I think the biggest potential source of revenue for many web sites, and the one many sites are making alot of bank off, is information. Just think how much information Twitter can glean on a person, by analyzing the info they provide, analyzing their tweets, their followers, who they follow, who they talk to, what their followers say.

    The information they glean from that is the same kind of information marketing and advertising companies, and political campaigns pay big money for.
