Popular social networking and micro-blogging site Twitter has now officially confirmed the fact that it will make 4 new premium accounts available to users: Sparrow, Dove, Owl and Eagle are the names of the aforementioned accounts. In related Twitter news, it seems that Twitter may become a mandatory discipline to be taught in primary schools across the United Kingdom.

Starting with the new Twitter accounts, it must be said that rumors about this option have been going around for some time now. Speculation over these premium accounts has now come to an end as Twitter has officially confirmed them. According to Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, these new accounts will become available in the near future – a specific date has not been disclosed.
