Twitter's hunting for a moneymaker

The microblogging service has put out a job posting for a "product manager" to focus on revenue generation. Thank goodness!

Another sign that Twitter is finally growing up: The company has put out a job posting hunting for a product manager to help it start raking in revenue. The San Francisco start-up, flush with venture funding and media hype, has yet to make a cent.

"As Twitter's first product manager focused on revenue generation, you will play a defining role in the formulation of Twitter's business," the job description reads.

Gee! You don't say?

Twitter CEO Evan Williams has hinted that the future of Twitter lies in some sort of corporate accounts. And indeed, the job posting says the gig involves the creation of "products and feature sets of commercial-oriented Twitter applications."

But it also asks for "strong familiarity with online advertising and marketing models," which means that Twitter advertisements may not be off the blocks.
