…TwittAd wants to make you twoney?


Think your Twitter profile is popular enough that it should start making you money?

If so, then TwittAd is here to help.

The service is designed to match users who don’t mind a little product placement and website promotion on their Twitter profile with advertisers looking for a new way to reach eyeballs, and offers Twitter background images that include the sponsor’s logo and information.

Twitter backgrounds don’t include clickable links, so it’s a little bit of a disconnect between the ad and a typical ad measurement statistic like click through rates and page views, but with a lot of companies eager to start using the service to reach a new audience, I don’t think it’s going to be tough to sell the spaces.

You Suck At Photoshop

If you liked the You Suck At Photoshop series, then be sure to check out Time Magazine’s interview with co-creators Matt Bledsoe and Troy Hitch.

    “It was meant to be a one-off thing,” said Hitch. “But two weeks later, we checked into YouTube and saw that it had 50,000 page views. We went to Rob and said, ‘Hey, we might take a sabbatical from Tim after Tim.’ ” They launched the second episode of Photoshop and within five days, it had 400,000 page views. Digg dug the site, BoingBoing boinged it, and LaughingSquid inked the deal. A star was born.

…Engadget is now king of the blogs?

If you ever had doubts about the fact that the way we get our news is changing, check out the totals from Engadget’s page views on the day of the iPhone announcement: 10 million. That’s right, seven zeros. I myself probably contributed about 100 of those at least as I refreshed in an effort to get up to the minute coverage of the keynote address. As the story points out, “by the time television and newspapers got to the story, the really interested readers were already on to the next thing”. Sure, TV, newspapers and other old world media still bring the news to those who just don’t care to get theirs as it happens, but when it comes to breaking stories, the blog is king.
