Twitter to start monitising?

I spotted something interesting on my Twitter page just then:

Twitter Advert
Twitter Advert

It looks like Twitter has identified an area on their page which can be used for advertisements and it currently being used to advertised their Search service. Is this the start of mini ads being shown on Twitter? Will Twitter try and flog this space to third -parties? Will the ads be context sensitive?

Lots of questions, does anyone have any answers? The truth is, at some point or other Twitter needs to start monitising it’s service and this would be a great spot to start. What do you think?

Update: Techcrunch have spotted them too

  1. i might be wrong but I think the official line is still that they are concentrating on building up yet more and more users before they monetise – they can only wait so long though.
