Itâ€™s no surprise that Twitter finally has built its sales team. They have been creating new features set to monetize their service for weeks. Twitter users can now see profiles to follow, promoted trends, ads, early bird deals, and other features that will help Twitter earn a few pennies.
Leading the department is Adam Bain from Fox News. Donâ€™t worry he wasnâ€™t apart of the news department. He was the head of online advertising for the network. At twitter he holds the title of "president of global revenueâ€. Twitter also grabbed a salesman from Google, Brent Hill. He will be in charge of US region sales.
What does this mean for Twitter? It means revenue that may help keep their servers afloat with the high amounts of traffic. It also means we will be seeing more advertising on the service. At least for now if you are advertising adverse you can use services like Tweetdeck that bypass Twitterâ€™s new features. These features only appear when you use the site.
This may change with Twitterâ€™s Fastfollow. Fastfollow is set to help individuals subscribe to Twitter via their mobile phones. You wonâ€™t need an account to receive messages from restaurants and other services you use. Of course that does allow Twitter to serve you mobile ads.
