It looks like Twitter has launched its new ad space. Again, a social media outlet has to resort to traditional marketing methods to begin justifying itself to its venture capital backers.
But Twitter’s business model is one in which it is basically just a database, rather than a website portal for information. Many of us never go to Twitter.com. And it would be interesting to know how many people actually use third party tools for all of their accessing of Twitter. In my case, I do all of my work in HootSuite and other apps that just access Twitter feeds.
