Unlimited Twitter...For A Price

So Jen's tweet got me thinking. Some of my favorite people seem to get thrown into Twitter Jail a lot. (Twitter Jail occurs when you update your status more than 100 times per hour or 1000 times per day and can last any time between 30 minutes and several hours. Thank you Industry Review for the definition.)

So here is my question: If you could pay a nominal fee to have unlimited Twitter access...would you? Do you consider Twitter to be something that would be worth it?

*I purposefully did not define what the 'nominal fee' would be because I'm leaving that open to your interpretation.
**Please note that multiple answers are allowed. If you would like to give more details about your choice, select your answer and then also select the "I'm leaving a comment explaining my reasoning" box.

Let me know what you think! I'm curious. Also, NO I did not hear that there was a rumor that we were going to have to start paying for Twitter. This is only my own busy little brain at work.  ;)

Update: Convo I had on Twitter after I posted the poll link:

I sure do love you guys. Also, is there a Twitter 12 step program? Because although I've never been thrown in Twitter Jail but I sure do feel like I might be an addict.

Testing my code to make sure it worked. Also, yes I would pay for Twitter but only if it were a VERY small fee (like under $5 per month or something). I'd consider it like the insurance I pay on my phone. Maybe I'll need it, maybe I won't but if I need it I will need it RIGHT NOW. ;)

Every time I've been thrown in Twitter Jail, it has had nothing to do with actually tweeting. There have been several occasions when I've had 15+ twitter tabs open (in Firefox) because I was looking at twitter profiles on a list - either to see if I wanted to follow them as a giveaway entry, to see if I wanted to unfollow them due to a "Twitter Cleanup" suggestion etc. Apparently Twitter does not like having so many instances of itself running at once and locks me out. So over USING in general must be the key to Twitter jail. *shrugs*

Wow. I've never been thrown in Twitter Jail and I've had times where I've tweeted A LOT. I suppose it's only a matter of time...

Seems like every day I learn something new about Twitter. Never heard of Twitter jail. I didn't know there was a limit. Of course I couldn't imagine doing 100 tweets in an hour anyway. Who can type that fast?
