San Francisco-based Twitter announced that five partners are using new software that automates and streamlines advertisements displayed as “tweets” and promoted to high-profile positions in user feeds.
“We've been testing the Twitter Ads API since January with our partners, and today we're officially launching it,” revenue product manager April Underwood wrote in a blog post.
“Marketers now have more tools in their arsenal to help them deliver the right message, to the right audience, on the desktop and on mobile devices — all at scale.”
Twitter started the year with more than 200 million users and a prediction by industry-tracker eMarketer that the company's annual revenue would top US$545 million.
