    While many have talked about Twitter monetization, HootSuite's gone ahead and done it. They have integrated AdSense into Hootsuite, and allowed you to add your AdSense code.

    hootsuite.com allowes 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. Ads are housed in a bar at the top of the page.

    Now here is the plan
    Step 1) Joine Hootsuite
    step 1) Start making as many twitter accoutns for newspapers, TV stations, news agencies etc. around the world as possible.
    step 2) Put the Newspapers RSS feed into the Hootsuite service. That way your followers will see your AdSence banner each time people click on a link.
    Step 3) Start bulding your profiles ( can be done with lively browser etc.)
    Step 4) Profit.
