|2016:|| Twitter Is Rolling Out Its Self-Serve Ad Platform|
The advertisers using the self-serve platform are small and midsize businesses, and they can make payments with credit cards rather than be invoiced. The ultimate goal is for advertisers to set up campaigns without ever making contact with a Twitter sales rep, in the vein of Google AdWords and Facebook's self-serve platform, but the advertisers in this launch were already customers.[br][br]"This is an important step in continuing to grow Twitter's business," the company said in a statement. "Our promoted products can help small and medium-sized businesses build their audience on Twitter and better engage with the people they want to reach. As with all of our advertising efforts, we're starting small, testing carefully and making improvements as we learn what works. We will slowly roll this capability out to more advertisers in the coming weeks and months."

|2028:|| Confirmed: Twitter Acquires Tweetdeck|
I am extremely happy and proud to let you know that TweetDeck has been acquired by Twitter. We completed the deal on Tuesday and are now in the process of "joining the flock".[br][br]The past three years have been an epic journey, with many highs and lows, accompanied by the constant thrill of never really knowing what to expect next. We've grown from one team member and a single user, to a team of fifteen and a user-base of millions. The reason for this growth is simple, our unwavering focus on providing high-quality tools and services for the Twitter-centric power-user. This has always been our core audience, the most active, influential and valuable users of Twitter and social media in general. Quality over quantity.[br][br]It is precisely for this reason that Twitter has acquired TweetDeck. The mainstream Twitter user-base is well catered for by twitter.com and the official mobile clients. And by becoming part of the official platform, TweetDeck will now fill that role for brands, influencers, the highly active and anyone that just needs "more power".
