According to TechCrunch, the monthly service “automatically amplifies your tweets and profile,” and includes a new analytics feature that lets users see how effective the service has been.
“Twitter’s pitch for the service is that it’s extremely low friction – there’s no need to create any dedicated ads. It’s also low commitment, as participants can cancel at any time according to the social network,” TechCrunch claimed. “Since it’s just in beta, Twitter is giving participants the first 30 days free, with the $99 monthly fee applied after that. It’s still invite-only for now, however, so you’ll likely have to be patient if you’re interested.”
Many Twitter users, however, were not as enthusiastic about the announcement.

It's great that they're looking at premium services for power users but this seems like a really bad way to go about it
