As far as making money with tweets, I suppose if you can automate the process, which is what the sites Trent links to seem to do, I don't see why we shouldn't at least try to make a little extra money since we're already using Twitter. Granted the amount of income won't be a lot, but since it's automated it doesn't really matter if we make anything or not as we'll still be doing the same thing. We won't be putting in any extra work or wasting anymore time. I think it's at least worth a try.
I suppose it depends on your main use for your Twitter account. For me, I use Twitter as a way to identify specific content that I think is of value to my readers. Adding ads into the mix, at least for my target market, devalues my stream. Not that there's anything wrong with automation -- if you can control the content.
I totally agree. As someone mentioned earlier, you can approve the ads before they're posted for at least one of the sites. Not exactly automated, but that is what I would do as I don't want to devalue my account, as you mentioned. I certainly want to provide value to my followers, so this is something that I would have to look into very closely before I started implementing any sort of ads.
