Twitter to to boost up Revenue

The lastest new from twitter is that on Tuesday Twitter hire 2 new sale executive from top web company. Guess who are they. Adam Bain, former president of the News Corporation’s Fox Audience Network, will be Twitter’s president of global revenue, and Brent Hill, Google’s former head of financial services for the Midwest, will be director of sales for the Midwest at Twitter.

Now with this new heads,  twitter will focus on new phase and plan probably more revenue is on th top of the BP. Earlier in 2008, Evan Williams, Twitter’s co-founder and chief executive, compared the strategy to Google’s in its early days, telling me in an interview: “It was the classic story of not worrying about monetization yet and getting their product right.”

Lets check the facts that twitter has been working this year.

Dick Costolo, Twitter’s chief operating officer, oversees all the revenue initiatives. Twitter previously hired Amanda Levy, formerly the first in-house sales executive at Yelp, to run West Coast sales, and Dan Coughlin, formerly at Facebook, to run East Coast sales.

And we hope to see more news coming out of Twitter, finally result can be seen End of Fiscal year.

ShowTribe is a twitter based application that lets TV fans keep up with the latest buzz surrounding their favorite TV shows and makes the TV viewing experience a lot more interactive.

TV has moved out of the TV screen. There is so much interesting information about every TV show on the web, but it is scattered and hard to find. We consolidate all of this information and serve it in the most interesting and usable manner.

Here are some of the highlights of ShowTribe:

1) You are out of luck if you just want to stay updated with what is going on with Entourage without being bombarded with Jersey Shore news as well.  Showtribe solves the problem of TV related information overload by segmenting these updates (News, blog posts and tweets) by TV shows to make it relevant and easy to consume. Users can see all the information they care about on one page by going to “Favorite Shows” section under Show Tracker.

2) Showtribe make it easy for TV fans to connect and follow people of similar TV interests without the need for lengthy registration or profile creation. Users can see updates from all the people they follow on a single page and interact with them.

3) Showtribe has an amazing feature called REACTIONS. It lets users share the following reactions on TV shows and news – Laugh, Applaud, Boo, Aww. This simulates the experience of watching a show in a social setting and adds a fun/addictive element to the website, especially for live shows. It also generate reaction graphs to show the general sentiment of people towards any show over the last 30 days.
