The microblogging service Twitter has been great for communication, breaking news, keeping up with your interests and broadcasting to followers. But the advertising there has been pretty limited to Promoted Tweets, Trends and Hashtags. That could soon be changing with a massive ad deal inked between Twitter and Starcom MediaVest Group that will allow advertisers to slot in more ads and more targeted ads. How much advertising can you take on Twitter? Will it drive you away, or will you accept it as the price of using a free service? How far can they go? Vote in our poll below, or explain your thoughts in the comments. To hear more about Twitter and the big ad deal, check out our recent podcast on the subject.Related
