Will We See Display Ads On Twitter Soon?

Twitter has been making a lot of moves lately, and where they’re going with them is anyone’s guess. But if I were to venture an opinion, I’d say it’s likely that they’re looking to monetize their users more heavily than the current Promoted Trends, Tweets and Accounts offers, and it’s possible that one way they’ll do this is by introducing banner ads on and related services.

Only 5% Of Your Followers Don't Care About Your Avatar

Earlier this month I ran a poll on Twittercism that asked my readers, “What Kind Of Twitter Profile Picture Do You Like To See?”

The survey had 130 responses which perhaps isn’t quite suggestive of the entire Twitter populace, and I’ve possibly been a trifle exaggerative with my title, but it’s enough to make the results of some interest.

There were three options available to voters:

  1. I like to see a real photo the person
  2. I don’t mind, as long as it’s not the default avatar
  3. I don’t care about the profile picture at all

You can check the results on the poll page, but the only number that I think really matters – it was, after all, my reason for submitting the question in the first place – was that only 5 per cent of voters stated that they did not care about the profile picture. This means, obviously, that 95 per cent do care, one way or another.

I invited readers to share their comments, both within this blog and on Twitter, and here are some of their thoughts. Note that unless they stated specifically commentators may have actually voted somewhere else, but their text was relevant to the designated area.

I Like To See A Real Photo Of The Person (58%)

“Prefer to see a real photo as I like to have a picture in my mind as to who I am talking to. Makes it more “real”!” (@snowleopardess)

“Re avatar, clear shot of head, but quite a obscure ones like @jackschofield or @jasonbradbury are good.” (@Thedrury)

“An honest looking photo (i.e. not a impossibly attractive portrait as the spammers prefer) as an avatar definitely sways my decision to look further, but ultimately it’s the bio and any recent tweets that determine whether I will follow or not. The use of “marketing”, “free” or “just seeing what all the fuss is about” in the bio results in being looked over though.” (@mattimago)
