Idea 1: Direct Advertising

The companies which want to advertise their products through Twitter. However, these companies require a high click-through rate of your tweets. The click through rate of your tweets can be analyzed by URL tracking services like bit.ly or SU.pr. Also you will be requiring a large number of followers. So if you have a good click-through ratio and large number of people following you then this is a good option.

Idea 2: Monetizing Twitter Profile Background

Advertisers who are interested in you will place a background image on our profile which provides publicity to their company. You can select the duration and price you want to keep your advertiser. Once that is finalized TwittAd will use the Twitter API to upload the ad to your Twitter profile.

Idea 4: Redirecting Services

This method to make money on Twitter is somewhat similar to the CPV (cost-per-view) way of making money. When a person clicks on your tweet links to reach his desired page then there is an advertisement page that opens up for a few seconds before it is redirected to the landing page. The payout in this type of advertising is generally in CPM (per thousand impressions). The only drawback is that this may not be appreciated by your followers who click on your link. So the point is to not put an ad link to all links that tweet on your profile.
