Twitter gets first online advertising


Twitter has finally earned its advertising stripes. Take a look at your Twitter page, and you’ll notice a brand new little bar sitting just under your follower stats. That is an advertisement. Twitter has previously said it hates the usual banner advertising methods, and would only run ads that were innovative. Now these ads are quite small, and each one we’ve seen ties in with Twitter in some way. What do you think – has Twitter sold out? Or was this advertising armageddon inevitable?

  1. Not so brand new though, I’ve noticed these for a while?

    Also, would be interesting to find out the inside info on how Twitter viewed the #moonfruit promotion…

  2. It may be innovative but how many users on Twitter actually click on them?
