What do you think of A Friend’s Tweet Could be an Ad? I find the idea offensive and have started to unfollow people who use their twitter stream to collect ad revenue. You may have ads on your blog, which is fine: the choice whether to read the ads is mine. But when an ad comes through your twitter stream like it’s normal content it’s no longer my choice. Web users have developed visual skills to filter past ads on web pages. There’s no visual cue on Twitter that would let you scan past a paid tweet. It’s deceptive.
