From it’s creation in 2006 as a social texting phenomenon where users can follow the lives, exploits and opinions of others, to a now viable advertising channel for small and mid-size advertisers, Twitter is now getting the attention of Wall Street and the investment community.
As with any advertising, it only makes sense to look at your audience to determine if there is a way to place effective ads. With 200 million twitter users worldwide, it is apparent that a form of advertising would eventually be created here.
In the US alone there has been a steady growth of Twitter users. Put that together with the fact that the increased use of smartphones and even “semi-smart” phones, (those phones that have Twitter access via their wireless carriers proprietary setup), will get more “consumer eyeballs” on Twitters portal, and you definitely have a good platform for niche advertising. -jdognet
