Twitter's Secret Plot

I have uncovered the true business plan for Twitter.

Twitter is a front organization for the cell phone battery manufacturers.

Their nefarious plot is to make your mobile phone vibrate so much from Twitter messages that the batteries literally wear out and you need to buy replacements.

Doubt me? Then you come up with a business model for Twitter that makes better sense.

I had suggested to Ev long, long ago that Blogger adopt as its business model the "pay to recover your password" model. This could easily scale for Twitter -- you forget your password, and you get charged $5 to recover it. Simple!

Alternately, there's forced-following of some Twitter accounts, which you have to pay to have removed from your friends list.

I could do this all day.
