In 1990, at the dawn of the digital epoch, the American futurist George Gilder wrote a prescient little book called Life After Television: The Coming Transformation of Media and American Life. Back then, in the primeval soup of the Web 0.1 age, Gilder predicted a grand historical platform shift in the distribution of information and entertainment, in which the television epoch would be replaced by "the age of the telecomputer." Fast-forward 18 years: Web 0.1 has matured into Web 2.0 and Gilder's epochal shift no longer sounds like the wishful thinking of a digital Hegelian.

Are you willing to pay a subscription fee to Twitter?
Yes - Twitter is an important tool for my organization. Paying for a subscription is an easy business decision for us.
Yes - I use the platform frequently and want access to every available feature.
Possibly - It depends on which features will be offered and what those will cost.
No - I will only use Twitter for services that are available free of charge.
No - I don't use Twitter for free, so I'd never consider a paid subscription.
