Twitter might be developing a premium version of its service, CEO Dick Costolo indicated on stage at Wired‘s business conference in New York City Tuesday afternoon.
An audience member asked Costolo whether Twitter would ever introduce a “pro” version for individual users. Costolo refused to confirm that Twitter was working to develop one, but did suggest that it was an idea the company was exploring.
Costolo said he imagined a product with “lightweight controls” for users. “Our designers and engineers would define how that would work. I don’t know what it will look like,” he said.
He offered no further details about what the premium product might look like, nor whether Twitter is developing any premium offerings for brands.
