Twitter bags $15m in funding

Microblogging communication tool Twitter is reported to have scored itself a whopping $15m in second round funding.

This brings the company’s total funding to $20m and apparently lends it a pre-money valuation of around $80m.

This sounds a bit of a virtual valuation to us, as we can’t see where Twitter’s business model is or how anyone can monetise the service. Then again it’s only a matter of time before someone mentions advertising in the same breath.

It’s not unreasonable to expect all eyes to be on Google at this point, which last year snapped up a similar microblog called Jaiku. And if the Big G is interested, there must be some way to make cash out of the service. Maybe.

Do you agree public funding should be used to support mobile operators to more broadly deploy Open RAN?
