New Promoted Tweets

A new thing is going to start popping into your Twitter stream whether you’re ready for it or not! The “new thing” is Twitter’s new ad campaign called “Promoted Tweets”. These are really just advertisements disguised as “promoted tweets”.  According to AdAge and The New York Times, the campaign will allow businesses to “insert themselves into the Twitter stream and rise above the noise” (Mashable).

The Promoted Tweets will just start out in searches, but will soon be seen in Twitter.com streams as well as in “third party apps” like Tweet Deck and Tweetie (Mashable).

Companies who are going to start using the Promoted Tweet are Starbucks, Bravo, and Virgin America (Mashable).

Below is an example of a Promoted Tweet from Starbucks:
