Here’s the third update to our January and April posts: Uber-blogger Robert Scoble, who in 2006 argued that having advertisements on blogs destroys trust, appears to be no longer content with… adding advertisements to his blog. Now he’s experimenting with Twittering adverts for perennial sponsor Seagate. He later twittered “I am just having a little fun getting a conversation about microblog advertising going”. That may be so but it will be interesting to see how the community reacts a) to Scoble’s move and b) the long-rumoured possibility of ads in Twitter feeds.
