I just monetized my Twitter account.
Go ahead, read that line again. I am going to make some pennies with Twitter. I won’t be spamming affiliate links in my stream. Every other tweet won’t be an ad.
I just managed to monetize my links with Hoot Suite. Find out how after the jump.
We’ve allowed you to insert your own ads into your ow.ly-shortened links. You do this by pasting in AdSense code for a 234 x 60 Half-Banner ad. These ads will be seen after an ow.ly link is clicked, and not before. Ads are housed in a discreet bar at the top of the page, which can be closed at any point with a single click.
That’s really it.
The blog entry has the complete and simple step process.
When you submit a link to Twitter, you do it via Hoot Suite‘s Ow.ly URL shortening service and it will open a framed window with your AdSense links at the top.
Smoooooth. Now let’s just see if it can generate clicks.
