A few days ago we told you how Twitter was going to offer “Sponsored” Tending Topics and it looks like they have started to roll out the changes today. If you visit Twitter right now you will see a new Trending topic for “Toy Story 3″ with a distinction that it is being Promoted as shown in the image below.
TechCrunch is reporting that Disney Pixar, who are the creators of Toy Story 3 might be the first buyer into Twitter’s sponsored trending topics and are also promoting a tweet when one clicks through the trending topic (see screenshot below)
Twitter, who were once questioned as to how they would make money are now turning the corner and making money through the service. It would be interesting to see whether Twitter bumps the promoted trending topics higher for higher payments or lets it stay where it is.
Are you seeing other Promoted trending topics on twitter?
