A catch phrase will go here soon.

Twitter Pro — $250 a year?


@Ev / @BizStone: I’d like to up my bid from $100 a year to $250 a year for a “Twitter Pro” Account. Please, please, please setup a “Pro” server for folks who are using Twitter as part of their business and who really can’t afford for it to be down. I’m talking to 2,000 folks 10x a day right now… that’s 20,000 touch points per day, 400,000 a month and like 5,000,000 messages you are sending out for me… A YEAR! Let me pay you please.

Twitter is how I stay in touch with my core, most dedicated, peoples…. that last week has been really hard for me. Please let me pay you…please.

    Keep your money for yourself, CALACANIS.
    If you’re not happy with the current service, I suggest that you move along. They’re clearly trying to solve the scaling issues, but that doesn’t in happen in 1 week.

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.
