The press statement says "Twitter always wanted to be unique in the sphere of social networking and it has always something special to offer to its users. Today we are rolling out a new feature that would pay Twitter users for every tweet through re.2et.in, a twitter app." Industry sources believe that this move is to counter the ever growing challenge from Facebook, Google Plus and Pinterest. Later, in a communication with journalists, Jack Dorsey, current chairman of Twitter, said "This is to reward our active users who has helped to bring in big advertisers on Twitter platform."

Thanks for reading the whole story. It was an April Fool prank.
