There has been quite a few Twitter advertising networks to come out the would works over the past year or so such as Sponsored Tweets, Betweeted, Twitvert, Twittad, Magpie and a dozen more. The problem is none of them have truly don't understand how Twitter works on a social level most of these Twitter advertising networks are usually broken down into two types of networks, the ones that only go after celebrities with high a high volume of followers and the other that just goes after spammers and tire kickers and doesn't ad any real value to advertisers or Twitter.
Ad.ly is the first network to accommodate all Twitter users, they have a large number of high profile celebrities but there is also room for the little guys with only a few thousand followers. Some of you who have already joined the network a while back might remember that campaign NBC had for upcoming shows one of which was True Blood (love that show) which I think everyone at the time got paid to tweet about the season finale which was $290 for a Tweet, yeah that's right one Tweet. Some Users are even getting upwards of $5,000 per tweet,and this is just the beginning.
