Widget Gives Sidebar Details Pane On Twitter [blog.twitter.com]
Twitter builds for-good efforts into our core because we saw an opportunity early on to change the way businesses do philanthropy. We launched our Promoted Products platform with a model that includes a program called Tweets for Good that gives non-profits (and even regular businesses campaigning to make a positive impact through our platform) an opportunity to amplify their message. The launch of our new Twitter.com is no different, and our business development team made sure to integrate a few partners right from the start that inspire giving.


The new details pane instantly displays content like photos and videos, and we chose the lending platform, Kiva, to build a widget that works in the space as well. Kiva is a lending platform that let's you loan as little as $25 to an entrepreneur who may only need a small chunk of change to begin, but whose life will no doubt be affected dramatically by the contribution. It's a powerful and simple idea that can spread faster and to a broader audience with the integration on Twitter.


This looks like it could easily lead to other messages. In fact, I don't see why they couldn't build in contextual advertising.

Right you are Neil. I've often wondered if they might be headed in that direction. Wanna take bets on if they'll start with Google Adsense? ;)

Wow. No conversation on this. Hey Neil, since we're the only ones in here, would you like to play a round of Cricket? ;)

I'll be looking into the program myself - after PubCon.
