We all knew this day would come, and now it's confirmed. Twitter will begin to sprinkle in ads into their results over the coming weeks. Initially, a singular ad will be shown at the top of search results. Much like Google, advertisers can bid on various keywords to display a 140-character ad for a price. Of potential interest to developers is the future opportunity to show ads in third-party Twitter clients, perhaps the most common way the service is accessed. It will be interesting to see if developers opt to embrace the model for a proposed cut of the revenue or support their software with other means. The roll-out seems very deliberate, perhaps after the oversaturation of ads on competing web 2.0 sites such as Facebook. Via Ad AgeSource: Go to source
