I’ve been on Twitter for a while now and I’ve seen a lot of spamming and scamming, but tonight one of the people I follow (well not anymore) started posting ads in their Twitter stream. I looked into it further and I have to admit it intrigued me. Making money by allowing ads into your stream is an interesting consept, but I don’t think it’s a good idea. Twitter is about relationships.

Would you go to a party and start spouting off a commercial for Advil or dare I say it Motrin? I sure hope you wouldn’t. Twitter is like a big party and it should be treated as such.

There are many Twitter ad sites out there, but this is the one I found tonight in the Twitterverse, RevTwt.com.

You enjoy tweeting with your friends, but wouldn’t it be great to make a little extra cash on the side while you post on Twitter? RevTwt has the solution: we give you links to post on your Twitter account, and you earn money each time someone clicks on your link!

One thing is for sure… if you start putting ads in your stream people will stop being your friend.

I’d like to hear your thoughts. Post them below in the comments.
