Ads on Twitter

I noticed this week that Twitter had started showing half size photos in tweets rather than a link to a pic.

To be honest I didn't like it.

I prefer my tweets to be the basic 140 characters and nothing else.

Plus the half a pic thing is just plain annoying.

Today I worked out why Twitter has done this.

Advertising.

Yes folks it would appear that yet again the solution to making money on the web is good old interruptive advertising.

When is it going to stop?
