This sounds like a Twitterized version of Woot.

Twitter really need to focus on keeping their service running 24/7/365. What good are advertisements if you can't see them?

Ah wait, maybe they're planning on serving ads with the Fail Whale, ah-ha, a freakin gold mine if you ask me!

It's opt in as far as I can tell.

There are thousands of @twitter_account's that will send you special offers, etc if you follow them. You may even get better targetted offers than I expect people will get with @earlybird.

So I am not saying that money cannot be made by tweeting special offers through twitter. Dell, Woot, and many others have done very well this way. I'm just not sure how much of it twitter itself hopes to capture with one twitter account.

Missing your tweets of late mate :D Hilarious, and such a good point, get your site constantly online is the first step, spam is secondary.
