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.
The 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
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?
