Twitter expanding business services

Twitter, the microblogging service that allows users to send messages of up to 140 characters, has apparently heard the cries from the business class. Twitter on Monday  introduced Contributors, which allows business accounts to designate other Twitter users, usually employees or PR, to tweet on their behalf, CNET reports. The service is currently in beta mode.

According CNET, the release of Contributor and other business-oriented features that Twitter currently has in development could be an omen that the release of Twitter business accounts is imminent.
