Twitter unveils advertising model
The BBC here, Advertising Age here and New Media Age here describe that Twitter will allow brands to pay to post ‘promoted tweets’ – updates that will feature in search results as well as in the brand’s feeds – so they can reach a wider audience than just their followers. The first set of advertisers includes Best Buy, Bravo, Red Bull, Sony Pictures, Starbucks and Virgin America.
