It may be that Biz Stone picked up some movement coming from Facebook, because a few days ago the co-founder of Twitter spoke about a subject that has returned to the scene today, although he is feared by most users of the social network: charging a monthly fee in exchange for the access to Mark Zuckerberg’s website.
A research firm found, in a survey, that at least 15% of Facebook users in the world would be willing to pay to get rid of the site’s advertising. more than Biz Stone imagined; he kicked 10% (see here).

“The Greenlight survey also showed that almost 70% say they ‘never’ or ‘rarely’ click on advertisements or sponsors listed on Facebook, indicating that consumer apathy is very real,” he told the AllFacebook the company’s COO, Andreas Pouros.
