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.
