FROM THE WEB: Is Adult Webcam Marketing On Twitter Nearing an End?
Rumor has it Twitter is getting ready to give adult webcam marketing accounts (…and all pornographic content accounts) the boot. According to a recent on article on TheDailyBeast.com the end maybe near for those who post adult content including marketers of adult webcam sites.
The original information comes from tech analyst Robert Peck from SunTrust Robinson Humphrey. The user dump alleged would mean up to 3% of all Twitter accounts would be removed which accounts for some 10 million accounts. When you realize that there are now some 300 million plus Twitter accounts this is merely a small fraction of users.
OUR TAKE: The impact of all adult content would only have the affect of Twitter losing significant traffic while creating a business opportunity for another Twitter-like service. As much as Twitter hates to admit it, the company make money off porn by the significant traffic that porn attracts, Millions of users go to Twitter just to see such content and many others follow niche adult accounts posts from their mobile phone. Many others in the case of adult webcam models follow their favorite live webcam models feeds. Twitters is an amazing platform that just needs to find other ways to monetize.
