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.
