Looks like Evan Williams wasn’t kidding when he turned down Facebook last month. Evan had said one of the primary reasons that Twitter turned Facebook down was that they haven’t established a way to monetize the social platform yet. He also mentioned that monetizing Twitter is the top priority over the next year. Evan claims that he is tired of having to rely on fundraising as their primary source of revenue.

In Twitter’s first effort to achieve that goal, they posted a job description for a Product Manager whose primary responsibility will be to monetize Twitter. The job description looks like this:

Anyone thinking of applying? How would you monetize Twitter?

    What a key role of responsibility that will be. The amount of general scrutiny and pressure will be pretty intense I reckon..!

    Great, here come the ads. Hopefully then can find a way that won’t be super intrusive.
