Today, we have a great domain worth exploring

TweetMuseum.com

Price: $3,030

Summary

Tweet Museum is a highly brandable name, which once hosted a platform that curated the best tweets from all over Twitter.

This is a fantastic domain. For investors, the staying power on a domain like this is huge. Someone else will likely want this some day.

For builders, we recommend creating a content/automation-focused SaaS platform for Twitter users.

Why Twitter?

Despite some signs of slowdown, Twitter has managed to rescue user growth. It is starting to take on a timeless feel, and there’s good reason to believe some ultra-top tweets will end up in the Smithsonian someday. (Err, maybe MOMA. Still a good museum!)

Twitter’s user growth stalled in late 2017 – interestingly the same year Twitter moved from 140 to 280 characters. Hmm…

Although Tweets are famous for being ephemeral, Twitter is starting to toy with the idea of giving value to permanence. Jack Dorsey’s first tweet, the very first Tweet in history, was minted as an NFT and sold for $2.9 million.

Opportunities for Twitter domains abound. A ridiculous misspelled Twitter domain (Twi6tter.com) once sold for $1,800 on Flippa.

And the idea of “enshrining” tweets into something more permanent/physical is gaining steam. I recently found out about wooden, laser-etched tweets.
