For me it's whether he wants to do something constructive, intelligent, and positive with Twitter or about the avaricious desire to possess yet another thing. I suspect the latter, but hope I'm wrong. I would not be happy if it became subscription based, and even more geared towards the the affluent...

I think it's me. I'll have an exchange of emails with someone , but sooner or later it fizzles out. It doesn't help that not much of great interest happens in my life. I have a very limited lifestyle .
