Ashton look out! Best Buy has something to sell you via Twitter.

Well, we knew it had to come to an end, but hopefully we wont feel the "in your face" marketing too bad. Fast reports this morning that Twitter will soon ad sponsored tweets to your daily feed. Like Dan Nosowitz from Fast Company says, Ads are no fun for users, of course. It'll be slightly annoying to see sponsored Tweets in with the updates you actually want to read. But if Twitter does this carefully, and it sounds like they are, these Promoted Tweets might actually be good for advertisers and only marginally annoying for users.

Will this change the way you use Twitter? Do you think Twitter could come up with a better way to monetize its site? Are you just happy that Twitter remains free and will deal with the ads...hoping they remain discreet?
