Twitter Won't Be Adding Ads This Year [uk.reuters.com]
Twitter has no plans to put advertisements on the popular microblogging site this year, co-founder Biz Stone said on Tuesday, amid a growing push for the 2-year-old Internet sensation to begin making money.

Stone, who said Twitter was "pretty good right now" with regards to funding, stressed the company's immediate focus was on building out features ranging from an improved search functions to paid-for commercial accounts.

"Any kind of approach toward advertising is going to be awhile ... We're not thinking about that just yet," Stone said at the 140: Twitter Conference in Los Angeles.

I'd guess a good part of this decision is the difficulty in deploying ads across many clients and the limited revenue (at the moment) vs. a worse user experience.
