The Myth of Promoted Tweets
My Twitter timeline:
Over on the Twitter support site: What are Promoted Tweets?
“A Promoted Tweet will appear in a user’s timeline only if the Tweet is likely to be interesting and relevant to that user.”
Meanwhile, back on my account:
Exactly how is a tweet “likely to be interesting and relevant” to me, if an account has annoyed me enough to make me block them? What bigger indication could I give that, in fact, I am extremely unlikely to find the tweet interesting and relevant?
If you’re going to shove ads into my timeline, fine. But at least be honest about it.
