Twitter top 20 list > Super Bowl TVC… eventually

A $250,000 USD offer was made to Twitter by Jason Calacanis (CEO of Mahalo) to lock in a 2 year position in the top 20 of Twitter’s suggested user list.

Could this be one of Twitter’s early moves toward monetizing their rapidly growing user base?

Long live micro-blogging.
