Twitter looking to make money!
It’s getting on for one year since I signed up to Twitter and it’s only in the last few days that they have begun to carry adverts. The “free” service clearly would not have been sustainable. The ads are in the side bar and are called “sponsored definitions”.
It will be interesting to see how many ads and links they will be prepared to carry. There is also speculation that Twitter will be able to introduce custom made tweets so that their preferred messages are interspersed with the tweets of the people you follow.
Users of aggregation services like Tweetdeck may find that the aggregators find a way to filter out the marketing messages. Of course, that could be a good thing for the aggregators who can then charge a fee for giving you streamlined vision!
