My Exciting Exclusive Offer From Twitter!

Today, I got an email about an “exclusive invitation” “to grow your presence on Twitter.” Exclusive sounds special, so I took a look at the email to see what it had to offer.

exclusive twitter offerThe email offered me the opportunity to advertise on Twitter.

Is this an exclusive offer? When I go to Twitter.com, there’s a prominent link on the front page, for “Advertisers”, which leads to a page that invites people to “Start Advertising”.

It seems that the offer to pay Twitter to advertise on its site is exclusive to people who

1. Have access to a computer
2. Can read

or

3. Know someone who has access to a computer and can read

Thanks for making me feel special, Twitter. What’s next… an exclusive offer to receive a telephone call from Twitter’s advertising sales division?
