Your Say

Change the name to 'Titter' for members to submit jokes for the best joke of the week. Members would vote for that best joke and submitter would win some prize -- joke submitters might be charged 10 cents to submit a joke, all proceeds to go to the weekly winner or split 50/50 with a charity such as 'Save the Children.'

The slogan could be, 'Be a Titter Submitter. Help hungry children.'

How about, instead of providing any positive stimulus for twitterers, just give them a good hard punch in the face? Then they'd have something to whine about.
