Oneforty Launches Twitter App Market, Raises Money

Twitter developers effectively received two pieces of good news originating from one company today.  Oneforty launched an app marketplace, and as it happens, also raised $1.9 million in funding.

The funding round proves that rich and smart people are very interested in Twitter apps.  So even if you’d have rather seen all or some of the $1.9 million head towards your pocket, the development’s a good sign for the future of the market.

As for the marketplace, well, this is another way for you to make money.  Leena Rao wrote, “[D]evelopers can integrate with oneforty’s e-commerce tools to sell apps directly through the site. . . .  Apps for sale will be featured prominently on oneforty’s home page, allowing developers greater visibility if they are participating in the marketplace.”

Just be warned the Oneforty does expect a share of each sale.
