My London boozing mate, Ralf "The Cartoonist," just pointed me in the direction of a post on bbspot.com, outlining how Twitter is finally going to start making money by creating "Premium Accounts." Douchenozzle Twitterers can now buy in at various levels, Sparrow, Dove, Owl and Eagle, that provide all kinds of goodies for lots of dosh. You also get more characters, up to 500 at the Eagle level... So now you can really bore the shit out of your thousands of followers. I love this bit... Users in any tier will be able to purchase an EmbellishTwit add-on for $100/year, which directs tweets to a well-educated offshore employee who will embellish tweets. For example, "Just had a whole wheat bagel and coffee for breakfast," becomes "Just got in from clubbing all night and Heidi Klum is spreading brie on a baguette just flown in on the Concord for my breakfast." Fucking brilliant... Oh, by the way... The whole thing is a spoof, but a brilliant one. Fucking read it now.
What's not to like about an Eagle account?
