Maybe a more proper question: How is Twitter going to make money, as in "earn cash"?

Flashbacks to summer 2009 - Twitter has lots of way to make money, and is doing so quite well at present. Sponsored trending topics, ads in the tweet stream, geo things, local things, other kinds of corporate tie ins... I don't know enough to say that X$ billion is worth it on their current business model, but honestly there are lots of way they can (and are) monetizing.
