Yesterday I did a blantant mistake of tipping Techmeme of a news story which went on to proclaim that Twitter at last has found a way to monetize. Humour site BBspot broke this story which goes something like this – Twitter co-founder and CEO Evan Williams today announced part of the company’s long-awaited business model: Twitter Premium accounts.

Said that, it was partly my mistake to tip techmeme without going deep into the authenticity of the news which I usually do before tipping techmeme or for that matter writing anything in my blog even.

This is the story that Techmeme took and pasted in this page:

But wait for a moment – Did you check the way the story was crafted. For instance, the story went along like this:

Premium accounts will come in four tiers: Sparrow, Dove, Owl and Eagle.

  • Owl ($50/month) – Users get 250 character limit, 100 extra random followers, 2 random celebrity followers, 30 minutes on recommended list, auto-spell check, “Fail Whale” hoodie.
  • Eagle ($250/month) – Users get 500 character limit, 1000 extra random followers, 3 celebrity followers of their choice, 5 hours on recommended list each month, Twitter Concierge for Tweeting while user is asleep or busy (and more), auto-spell check, “Fail Whale” tuxedo, custom “Fail Whale” page when service is down.

Anybody who is somehow interested about how twitter would be monetizing, then this is it. I too fell for that damn thing. But why didn’t techmeme understand that? I even tipped that the story I gave was a satirical piece and not to be taken seriously but their algorithm doesn’t understand that it seems. Surely automated news doesn’t work that well. Last November, they got Megan McCarthy who was supposed to act more like an editor but alas! The human bot also failed whaled in these circumstances!

More so, I even removed by tweet thinking that if Techmeme filters the tipped news then would go through my tweet and understand that I tipped it wrongly. But again, they failed in doing so!

Certainly, twitter is hot news in the web. Anyone coming with some twitter news sells like hot pancakes and this is what it happened in this case.
