Well, at Least Someone’s Making Money Off Twitter

dellguy1-150x150Dell generated some $61.1 billion in revenue last year and $57 billion the year before.

And of that $118.1 billion, $6.5 million was generated by Twitter promotions.

Which is nothing. Don’t get me wrong; it’s certainly interesting that Dell pays enough attention to the social media space that it can accurately track the sales leads generated by services like Twitter. And it is, perhaps, worth noting that the company’s leadership describes Twitter as a “very vibrant channel for us and it’s growing aggressively.”

But $6.5 million over two years? That’s not exactly going to push Dell (DELL) past Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and Acer in worldwide sales of PCs, is it?

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
