Twitter to Roll Out Ads and Promoted Tweets in User Timelines

Written by Gradly on . Posted in blog, News, Social Networks, Twitter

Its final, Twitter would soon begin to roll out ads, Promoted Tweets, in user timelines. The truth is that they’ve been talking about this possibility for a while. And they’ve even tested it with third party partners like Hootsuite. According to MG Siegler. Twitter will start placing them on

The sponsored Tweets will only appear in your timeline if you already follow the account that has paid for the spot. If that’s the case, a single Promoted Tweet will appear at (or near) the top of your main timeline when you log in to for the first time in any given day. As you get new Tweets, these Promoted Tweets will be pushed down just like regular Tweets. But if you refresh the page, the ad will appear at the top of the timeline again, is our understanding.

These ads will also be clearly marked as “Promoted” with an orange arrow icon below the tweet, the same way Promoted Tweets and Trends are currently shown on the sidebar or in search. And it will say the full company name of the company that is doing the promotion. These Tweets can also be dismissed from your timeline with one click. More from twitter blog:

That’s why starting today, we’re introducing a way to ensure that the most important Tweets from the organizations you follow reach you directly, by placing them at or near the top of your timeline. These Promoted Tweets will scroll through the timeline like any other Tweet, and like regular Tweets, they will appear in your timeline just once. Promoted Tweets can also be easily dismissed from your timeline with a single click.

Twitter now delivers a whopping 350 billion tweets each day, the company said on Friday by this tweet:

Delivering 350 billion Tweets a day is a terribly fun engineering challenge. But, it doesn’t capture how passionate our users are

The news comes just one day after Google announced that it had amassed 10 million Google+ users in just two weeks, and that these users share 1 billion items each day. This is good for a 2-week-old product though.
