Twitter may sell followers

Twitter may soon make it possible to buy followers.  According to All Things Digital Twitter is planning to lay out a new feature to help monetize their site.   A system by which users could pay to promote their tweets and profiles in order to achieve a larger fan following. Twitter in turn may charge the users based on the number of new followers gained or on the extent of exposure achieved.

A new site, TweetUp has already got a similar system, which allows users to build up their follower base.

Twitter has refused to confirm or deny any such plans. Twitter spokesperson, Sean Garett says “eventually (the company would) have full suites of both promoted and commercial products.”
