Mediabistro Do you think it's ok for the AP to send sponsored tweets? (via @alltwtr)

twitter@kristal_bailey yes, as long as they're clearly marked & don't affect content of their other tweets. You gotta pay the bills.

twitter@Julie_McMahon If it's transparent, it's cool.

twitter@Lilyvania it seems to be common practice nowadays...

twitterApril Corbin Not worried at all. Sponsored tweets will be clearly marked. How is this any different than a print, web or tv ad?

twitterMarsha Samuel Disagree. As a journalism outlet, AP should stick to reporting facts. This move sets a bad precedent.
