Angel investor Ron Conway in on stage at or Real-Time Stream Crunchup even. He has the top 10 monetization opportunities in real-time data — like David Letterman’s lists.
10. Lead generation
6. Payments – If I was at PayPal, I would be looking at this.
4. User authentication – Corporate accounts want to pay.
3. Syndication of new ads – Twitter itself could just syndicate. Multi-billion.
2. Content advertising and advertising context and display
1. Acquiring followers
There’s at least $5 billion of monetization right there — at least, Conway says.
