    I am thinking about creating a campaign and was wondering if anyone has had success running them. I am on the fence because I know a lot of people dont actually visit twitter and its usually all automated. So what can I expect when running twitter ads targeting with keywords? Also if you have done before whats the lowest CPC you've ever gotten?

    Either way I will run a campaign and post my results here, Only thing that I like about it is I can target people by who they follow and who have certain keywords in their posts. So its as targeted as they can get. I guess it wont hurt because bots cant click right?

    I didn't even realize that twitter have a advertising program before i see this thread.
    Why you don't try sponsored tweet. buying a tweet from the right person could help you much more, i guess

    LOL I just learned myself few minutes ago, they target by keywords which is something Ive never seen before in social media. But how can I find someone to sponsor a tweet? Im interested in that for sure.

    Thanks, Im looking for more targeted and want to avoid those people who add fake followers and your tweeeting to a bunch of bots. I guess sponsored tweets isnt what Im looking for. Im looking for promoted tweets via Twitter ads

    I received this email about getting free ad credit today. I've not tried it but you might find it useful.

    As you probably know, you can now advertise on Twitter by means of promoted tweets (paid tweets that are shown by Twitter to demographics of your choice) and promoted accounts (where your Twitter account is promoted by Twitter to demographics of your choice).
    Twitter has graciously enabled SocialOomph to offer you a $50 value in free ad credits for every one of your Twitter accounts so that you can try out advertising on Twitter without risking anything.
    Please follow the procedure below to apply for the ad credits:

    1. Sign in to your Twitter account at https://www.twitter.com.
    2. Click the following link that will take you to the free ad credits offer: https://cards.twitter.com/cards/18ce53upycg/4y6.
    3. Click the blue Apply Now button.
    4. Twitter will review your application and let you know whether it has been approved or not (this may take a few hours or days).
    5. Return to https://www.twitter.com and sign out of your Twitter account.
    6. Once you're approved, navigate to https://ads.twitter.com, sign in to your Twitter account, add a credit card to your profile, and then create your promoted tweet or prmoted account campaign using the free ad credits.
    Repeat the entire procedure above for every Twitter account that you want to sign up to receive the ad credits. You might need to clear your browser cookies between each repetition of the procedure.
    If you have any questions, please contact us at our help desk.

    I have tried them in the past and have been helping different companies setup campaigns as well but there are certain services which have proven to be a lot more effective than the actual Twitter advertising which is why celebrities and a lot other companies prefer to choose them rather than going and advertising officially on Twitter.

    No body clicks twitter ads because there not even ads. Its just a promoted post.

    Sites like tweetsta and tweetpeddler are pretty crap I know. The accounts with high followers charge wayyyy to much considering their favorite and retweet ratio I noticed when they do get a tweet bought.
