Well, you all knew it was just a matter of time... I'm surprised they held off for this long. I only follow people, not companies - I wonder what ads I will see?

You'll see whatever pays the most and has the most generic targeting parameters. If I were you, I'd pay attention to these tweet ads just so I could find new niches.

I assume this is only where you follow someone.
I have one of my client's tweets posted on his website via Twitter's widget.... No following. Are we going to see ads in this stream? I assume not, but it's unclear.
Twitter certainly has the right to do this, but I think this is going to have people taking a hard look at what has been a fun service. This now appears to be "sign up for spam" to me. Maybe not, but I don't think this is like the annoying ads next to my Hotmail messages from Hotmail. Good luck to them with this.

Since I use Twitter® as a news source, I reckon I'll now be bombarded by "spam Tweet®s". I'll have to reconsider whether I want to watch words from their sponsors.

Celebrities use twitter and they will not tolerate the appearance of sponsoring companies in an unsolicited manner. I suspect twitter will lose many of them which is a shame, you know the advertisers will target them with reckless abandon.
I think Twitter is near it's peak now.

cautiously lifting billboards between human interaction. yeah, way to go. business models of social networks are so pathetic.

I'd rather see display ads on the right hand panel of the new web interface. But then that wouldn't catch all the third party apps that people use to interact on Twitter.
