Startup Adjix has a way to monetize on your Twitter account by adding short text ads to the end of your tweets. It works by selecting from options of different ads, and then when you send out your tweet, the ad link shows up at the end of your message, clearly marked as an ad.

Payment is based on your number of Twitter followers and the bid price from the advertiser. For example, if a Twitter user has 1,000 followers and the advertiser is willing to pay $0.50 CPM, the user would earn $.50 for that tweet.

There is more information on the specifics here, and you can also watch a video demonstration.

While I'm not surprised at this, I think it's a bad idea. Twitter's promise is in its ability to personalize connections. I have a feeling it won't go over well with most Twitter users, except maybe those who already use it as a spam/advertising tool.

It's definitely a slippery slope, and an eyebrow-raiser. Some users will absolutely scoff at the idea of ads being tweeted to them.

I'm also concerned for the advertisers. Finding thousands of followers is not hard, especially with all the non-Twitter sanctioned tools out there that can add followers by the dozens in a matter of minutes. If advertisers are paying based on followers, that could be a real problem.

Really good point. I'm not opposed to advertising, but Twitter isn't the forum for it, at least not this way of doing it.

Oh this is too bad and I hope it doesn't catch on.

For companies tyring to make connections and market their product using Twitter, they already know the difficult balancing act between sales tweets and tweets of true interest ...all the while trying to gain more followers.

A program like this, if it does catch on, will make marketing on Twiiter much more impossible, I fear. Please keep us posted. Thanks!

Can you say "unfollow"?  With only 140 characters including an ad means the actual message is so short as to be worthless and the whole conversation becomes complete spam.  As if Twitter wasn't vapid enough, now it will have ads.
