In a blog post today Twitter announced that they will start charging for vowels. For $5 you can buy vowels to use on the social media giant.

“Starting today, we are shifting to a two-tiered service: Everyone can use our basic service, Twttr, but you only get consonants. For five dollars a month, you can use our premium “Twitter” service which also includes vowels.

We’re doing this because we believe that by eliminating vowels, we’ll encourage a more efficient and “dense” form of communication. We also see an opportunity to diversify our revenue stream. Here’s our mockup of the most retweeted Tweet of all time as it would appear in the new Twttr:”

But those looking for the free version will be able to use ‘y’ anytime they like.

The April Fools Joke has gone over pretty well.

They promoted the hashtag #nvwls and #icanhasvowels for the joke and asked people to go for more details. There they were let in on the joke.
