Twitter To Introduce Paid Tweets ?

The micro blogging site Twitter has introduced a new feature which will allow users to promote their tweets by paying a certain amount of fees to the social networking giant.

These type of ads will be visible to users who follow the advertiser’s brand and will be similar to a normal tweet. As far as we know, companies have started using this feature and currently their followers have started receiving their “paid tweets”.

According to TechCrunch, Adam Bian, the global revenue chief of Twitter, said that,“We’ve found that 20 to 40 percent of users follow one or more brands on Twitter. The one problem we’ve heard from users is that when there is exclusive content or deals, there’s a chance they might miss them.”

Though this service is not a surprise as its beta version has been there since March, it is still worth noting that this is the first time that Twitter has deployed its business strategy.

Till date, users are getting tweets only from the brand they follow, but this policy may get updated in future. One thing good about this feature is that companies will have a large social platform to advertise their products.

Now it is time to talk about some issues with this feature. Technogazette has seen these type of ads and we feel that they can be easily ignored as no new feature in these ads has been used. Some users may find them similar to Facebook ads thus there is no original thought.

Facebook App For The iPad Already There?

The long awaited Facebook app for the iPad might be already in the market. This app has not been officially released yet but it has been found in the code of its iPhone version.

According to TechCrunch, the iPad version of Facebook app was stealthily coded into its iPhone counterpart. This app can be used by anyone who has an iPad but there are slight modifications that the user will have to make in order to use this app.

It has long been said that Facebook is planning to launch an app for the iPad but Facebook has never provided a comment on this issue.

Whenever an app for any Apple product has to be launched, it is first submitted to Apple Inc.

Apple then takes some time in reviewing that app and finally that app is made available for the users. Usually, this whole process takes a lot of time because Apple doesn’t specify the time period of its revisionary process.

Even if the claims of TechCrunch are genuine, this app would require jailbreaking your device to use it and that thing is illegal and Apple will not provide you any warranty if your OS gets malfunctioned in this process.

Our take at this news is that the users should wait a while for the launch of the official app. If you cannot wait, there are hell lot of apps available to access Facebook that don’t need tampering with your device.

We’ll keep you informed regarding this app.
