Advertising on Twitter

The Ads Are Coming

Twitter ads are scheduled to hit your screen later this afternoon. They call them “Promoted Tweets” and they answer the age old question of how twitter is going to leverage its massive user-base to to bring in cash.

Current advertisers scheduled to pop-up at launch include: Best Buy, Sony Pictures, Starbucks and Virgin America.

Don’t you love the way promoted ads always show at the top of your Google and Bing results? Get ready to see the same strategy employed in your twitter searched: Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said on their blog recently that the promoted tweets will be shown in search results, similar to the sponsored search results in Google, Bing and Yahoo.

Will you click them? or better yet, Will you advertise with them?

  • I voted for “Maybe Once Every Couple Months”. Actually, it depends on what ad shows up on the page, and if I need what's on the ad. Well, at least that's for me. How about the others? Why did you choose Not a Chance? Maybe Once Every Couple Months?
