Twitter’s new In-stream Ads: Timely Tweets

It’s been over the internet for a while and even Twitter have been talking about those ads that we might see in our stream. Twitter announced a new feature in a blog post today; Timely Tweets.

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.

I think this new ad system is really smart and feel a lot like AdWords in a way. They’ll show you promoted tweets only if you follow a business. So if you opt-in an Ad might help you find what you’re looking for, which feels like Search Ads.
