Twitter AdvertisingBy http://profile.typepad.com/1237764140s22740 // September 8, 2012 in Ad-Free Commercial Web
My "Send Twitter a Dollar" campaign on Tumblr has not gone viral.
I do notice, however, a recent uptick in traffic to two posts on this blog about the efforts of my son, Dan Carleton, to come up with ways to extract, suppress, bury, eliminate ads from my Twitter timeline. And you can do the same, thanks to Dan!
On the web, that is.
Here is an ad that showed up on my iPhone Twitter stream just now. An ad about using ads to get more Twitter followers. I'll also screenshoot a tweet about juicing buzz about your speech for President by paying to have it trend.
Seems like cheating to me. On top of poor taste.
I regularly report the accounts serving ads as spammers. We'll see how long that function lasts!
