    Promoted by Starbucks Coffee – yes I see it at the bottom of the tweet.
    So will we see the day when Twitters can earn money through sponsored tweeting?

    Nice one Al. All the best,

    Thanks for your comment Steve~

    It sounds like Twitter is following the google and Digg ad model.
    Have not heard anything about Twitter offering sponsored tweets.
    The current ad platform model looks to cater to the bigger business as of right now.

    Stay tuned for updates.

    Thank you for commenting and spreading the word Steve.

    have a great day my friend.
