Twitter’s monetization strategy has been a long time coming and while it’s still not known exactly what Twitter has planned, an ad platform is widely expected.

It’s still not known is when Twitter plans to announce its money-making plans, but we may now have an indication.

In an interview with CNBC, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said “later this month [we’ll be] revealing exactly how we plan to make a sustainable source of income so we can build a business.”

PaidContent notes that Stone likely means next month when Twitter has scheduled its Chirp conference. On the agenda is “monetization.”

Stone doesn’t give CNBC much more info, other than to say, “We’re going to roll out something that we think is appropriate not just for users but also for the ecosystem.” Stone says the roll-out will also “give us time to tweak the model and experiment with things.”

Here’s the interview:
