Three possible ways to cash in on Twitter ads

After what seems like years and years of speculation, Twitter says that a roll-out of an ad-driven business model is "imminent". The revelation came during a panel discussion at the IAB Annual Leadership Meeting 2010. One of the panel members, Anamitra Banerji, is Twitter's head of product management and monetization.

Why Coke Should Have Known Its "2 Girls 1 Cup" Campaign for Dr Pepper Was a Disaster Waiting to Happen. Last Updated Jul 21, 2010 2:22 PM EDT The most telling part of Coca-Cola (KO)'s cancellation of its Dr Pepper Facebook promotion is that the company admitted it signed off on the text of the campaign without knowing what "2 girls one cup" actually means. Coke is an old company and Facebook is a new trend: What happened here is the marketing equivalent of parents trying to show their teenage offspring that they're trendy too, with all the awkwardness that implies.
