The millions of messages flowing through Twitter every day create a lot of data. And experts think there's a potentially lucrative market for tools that organize and analyze that information. Twittercounter lets users track such statistics as increases in the number of people following their tweets. And for users who want their profiles viewed widely, Twittercounter also has a premium "featured user" service that includes profile pics, short bios, and links to Twitter pages. The site is generating revenue by charging $500 for every 150,000 featured-user impressions. Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten expects revenues to increase 25% each month for the foreseeable future.
