Twitter Unveils Premium Accounts


EDIT: I also failed to notice that this is A COMPLETE HOAX.

Twitter is gaining in popularity, that cannot be denied. I still just don’t understand why people like to lifecast this much though, but hey, who am I to judge?

The Twitterati will today be pleased to find out they can now pay Twitter a good chunk of money for extra features. Four tiers of payment will be available: Sparrow, Dove, Owl and Eagle. Here’s what’s included with each fowl:

  • Sparrow ($5/month) Users get 145 character limit, 5 extra random followers.
  • Dove ($15/month) Users get 160 character limit, 25 extra random followers, 1 random celebrity follower, auto-spell check, “Fail Whale” T-shirt.
  • 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.
  • I can’t help but notice that the top three packages all come with clothing. A Twitter Tuxedo? Really? I’m curious to see how this works out. No doubts that quite a few people will hop on this right away, but I’m curious to see if the majority of Twitter users are ready to shell out money for the service. Time and tweets will tell.
