I was reading an article in the Time Magazine today about how people who twitters can now earn some money from advertising.
Personally advertising that appears on blogs does not bother me. It is static, it doesnt really do anything except maybe flash to get your attention when you’re going through the blog.
However, when it comes to advertising in Twitter, it’s different.
How do you know whether the person who posts the advertisement is endorsing the product or service based on personal experience or they are endorsing because they are paid to? It’s almost like people who twitters now can become mini ambassador….
Personally I would not want to read a tweet advertisement. It just simply put me off from ‘following’ the person.
What do you think? Would you try to earn some money out of twittering and potentially lose some followers?
