Promoted Tweets are coming to your Twitter Timeline soon

Twitter have confirmed on there blog that promoted tweets are coming to your timeline soon to keep the company running. Wait… before you think Twitter is going to be over flooded with banner ads and ruin your experience – Twitter have said they are doing this in a un-obtrusive way so the ads wont ruin your experience for example: By putting promoted posts in your timeline, Putting promoted Twitter users in the sidebar and Putting promoted trends in the trends box. All of these examples are the the picture below.

In my opinion I think even if  Twitter is putting ads in there site this way it still annoys me a little bit but Twitter has to keep their company running so I guess they have to put ads on there site.

iPad Facebook app in the iPhone app?

There has been a Facebook app on the iPhone now for a long time and it is very successful. There is really only one good app for it unlike the countless twitter clients and so forth. We all knew that an iPad app will be in the pipelines soon, but there has been coding found in the application that links to an iPad application.

Does this mean that the iPad app will be coming sooner rather than later? I hope so!

Tell me what you think! COMMENT!!!!
