Twitter Ads

I was flipping through the channels and caught a glimpse of a news show about ads on Twitter. Companies will be able to buy certain search words to allow their tweets to be the first seen. The example they showed was Starbucks buying the word coffee. One person interviewed basically said she did not mind if it allowed her to get a free coffee once in a while.

  1. There certainly are differences of opinion about advertising, where some see it as inherently evil, and others as being just about people making their livings. The greater concern than ads, though, is how they use Twitter, Foursquare, and the like to collect information about us.
