Twitter's Earlybird Account Will Pump You Full of Time-Sensitive Deals

Twitter last night launched its Earlybird promotional account, which is an attempt to make a bit of money by offering time-limited, sponsored deals from advertisers to all its followers. We know you need to start making money, Twitter—but affiliate sales? Is there really no better plan than pumping out Amazon links?

And will people purposefully follow an advertising account? Those deals had better be good. [Twitter Support]

Twitter could have charged, $20-$100 for developer API access but there didn't

Twitter could of put 1-2 spots on there site with google text ads

Twitter could have allowed select sponsors to theme there main page

If they REALLY need money they can always sell there souls to Google. They'll buy anything for 600m-billion
