TBG Presents Twitter

October 21, 2010

Monetising Twitter has been a topic of much debate over the last year or two, and with it’s ever increasing scope for brands to advertise using its platform, it’s  a hotter topic than ever. This video, hosted by UK agency (and my former employer) TBG Digital provides an interesting insight from Twitter themselves as to it’s plans on advertising via the social network giant. What’s interesting is their dedication to keep Twitter an enjoyable experience for the user, hence their very considered step by step approach towards advertising. Keep an eye out for promoted tweets also – I think we’ll be seeing lots more of these.

By now most of us I’m sure are aware of the brilliant new Old Spice campaign from W&K Portland (i’m on a horse? swan dive?). Well, they’ve brought the fight online by posting video responses to fans tweets. Executed in typically suave Isaiah Mustafa fashion, they are brilliantly written and great to watch. Follow them on twitter or check out their youtube channel.

Here are my favorites:
