TWTRCON / onforty.com Twitter Promoted Products Poll November 18, 2010 | page 10 Business Users Also Express Concerns About Twitter’s Promoted Products Users may tune it out: • “I think people will gloss over the ads like they do TV commercials.” • “I think this needs to be placed somewhere else. I want purity in my trends not purchased trend slots. It just gives me something in the middle of useful content to ignore.” Users may revolt: • “I think there are too many people pushing junk on Twitter. It's about connecting with people and if all Twitter becomes is advertised tweets the users are going to revolt. “ It’s not organic: • “It seems like a waste of money for some Promoted Trends to pay to be a trending topic when they would trend organically… . Especially in entertainment or sports, newsworthy topics or events will trend on their own based on fan interest [and] be taken more seriously as a trend reflecting consumer interest rather than being paid placement. “ • “It goes against the credibility of the product: need to be pushed, the "promoted" label has a negative impact - at least on me.“ Q.
