After reading a study published by the Annenberg School for Communications surveying 1,900 people on whether or not they would pay to use Twitter, film critic Roger Ebert was shocked — the study found that 0 percent of respondents were willing to pay for the service. So, Ebert decided to conduct his own survey among his 196,000 Twitter followers. Of the nearly 4,000 respondents to Ebert's poll, 19.4 percent said they'd be willing to pay for Twitter.
Considering what I use it for, I don't think I'd ever pay for the service. And if Twitter ever did decide to enact some sort of subscription-based model, I feel that most users would prefer to take their tweets somewhere else.
So, here's a poll of my very own, and I'm asking, would you ever pay for Twitter?
