Twitter Begins Promoting Ads In Trending Topics [readwriteweb.com]
The company appears to have begun promoting keywords in its "trending topics" list for sponsors.

When users click on a promoted trending topic, they are brought to a search results page, where the page is topped by a promoted Tweet. They aren't sent to an ad landing page, but to a live and uncensored conversation. That's what we're seeing with the new movie Toy Story 3 today at least. It's a logical and interesting way for the company to make money. It's also unlike almost any other advertising in history.

That's pretty innocuous as ads go. An advertiser is demonstrating considerable confidence in their product. Probably a good thing for Toy Story 3, maybe not so good for, say, BP.
