Study: No One Would Pay for Twitter

11:30 AM -- Zero percent of users would pay for Twitter, according to a new study from the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.

Exactly none of USC's 2010 Digital Future Report’s 1,981 participants said they would consider paying for the popular microblogging site.

USC project director Jeffrey Cole called the finding "extreme" and said it "underscores the difficulty of getting Internet users to pay for anything that they already receive for free."

In other Twitter news, the site will soon begin to show photos and video in the Twitter stream, according to a report from Mashable. The new feature, currently testing on some accounts, will be called "Tweet Media."

Opinion Why would anyone pay for Twitter lol? Social networks should always be free no matter what, it's what our people deserve. There was another study, that you can click here to read. Based on it, a social network would not earn a cent from an average user. The business will simply fail.
