Which ads are trending on social media?
Twitter is now officially rolling out a new advertising service called Twitter Ads, which allows users to post ads directly to the platform.
According to an official announcement from the company, the service allows users “to easily place ads directly on Twitter for the first time.”
Twitter is the first social network to provide this capability, and it allows users directly to place ads on the platform, which is the company’s main competitor to Facebook, in a way that’s similar to the way Facebook ads are seen on Google’s Android platform.
The company’s new ad platform will allow users to create ads for brands, businesses, or other entities on the Twitter platform, and Twitter will then present them in real-time, via an ad-sending widget.
Users can also create a tweet, and they’ll receive a link to the ad-posting page that shows how to install it.
Twitter Ads will be available in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Russian.
It is not clear what the specific terms of service will be for the service, but the announcement notes that “Twitter Ads is a trademark of Twitter Inc.” and that “no other terms are implied.”
Twitter has been struggling to find advertisers for its services in recent years, with the company struggling to get brands on board with its platform.
Earlier this year, the company said that it would not be able to generate ad revenue for the foreseeable future, with only the likes of Google, Facebook, and Amazon showing interest.
The decision to launch a new ad service comes at a time when Twitter is also getting ready to roll out a slew of other services, including an overhaul of its News Feed and a new search app.
The platform is also planning to bring back its own photo-sharing app, but that will be in a completely different format.
