Twitter is a global phenomenon and one of the fastest growing sites with millions of users from around the world. Tweets are valuable pieces of content that require time and hard work to produce. There is a need for publishers to be compensated for the content they create on twitter. The most logical form of compensation for this content comes in the form of advertising.
In-Stream Advertising is displaying ads as tweets to your followers under your twitter profile to promote an advertiser’s product or service, and you will get paid money for showing that ad from the sponsor.
What is Ad.ly?
Ad.ly is an in-stream advertising platform that matches prominent and higher-value twitter users (celebrities, bloggers and regular Internet users) with top-tier advertisers. It helps you to get compensated for your hard work creating content on twitter.
Ad.ly for Advertisers
Ad.ly enables advertisers to reach the highly sought after twitter audience by connecting them with the most so-called influential and popular twitter members in the community.
Ad.ly for Publishers
Ad.ly enables twitter publishers to make money from the content they produce on twitter by sending one tweet every day from advertisers that they approve. In order to ensure authenticity, every Ad.ly tweet is explicitly approved by the twitter publisher.

How does Ad.ly work?
Ad.ly automatically sends 1 advertisement message in your feed every day from advertisers that you approve. With Ad.ly, you approve every tweet/ad that is sent in your feed. The ad will show up in your stream at a randomized time for the day it was approved.
For the sake of disclosure, Ad.ly messages (except tweets for charity) are marked as ad.ly ads (Ad by http://Ad.ly). In order to ensure authenticity, every Ad.ly message has to be explicitly approved by the twitter publisher and is disclosed as an ad.
How do I tweet for charity?
With Ad.ly you can send part or all of your earning to charity. When you’re tweeting for charity, the end of the approved ads in your feed will be disclosed with (Ad 4 Charity).
