Since the beginning of twitter, it has been unable to properly monetize itself and earn the revenue it could be earning. There are already sponsored tweets and such but should twitter add actual sponsored ads similar to facebook?
The traffic is there for twitter, but it seems like the ads would interfere with the sleek design twitter has. However, server costs and other high tech costs make it a necessity for twitter to start earning more. Perhaps twitter could launch a deals service similar to facebook and groupon by offering advertising directly to companies via their twitter accounts.
Regardless, something needs to be done now because twitter is wasting time and opportunity by not capitalizing on the millions of page views on twitter each month. I for one would not mind ads so long as they are not too intrusive. I understand businesses need to make money, just make sure that ads do not ruin my overall experience. What do you think about sponsored ads similar to facebook?
