Twitter Japan denies paid access

Oops! Looks like the knee jerk online media go it wrong here. Digital Garage, Twitter's partner in Japan, denied that it was offering paid access to premium accounts. But, I agree with Asiajin who says that DG are trying out all kinds of Twitter add-ons at arm's length (so as not
to annoy Twitter US.

[Update: 1st Dec 2009] Joi Ito, the Founder of Digital Garage, has responded on his blog that this was "a misunderstood presentation by a DG subsidiary, DG Mobile, about potential business opportunities that it could explore as a third party".
