Today in Social

Just as 140Proof, an ad network for real-time feeds, hires a new sales VP from Gawker Media, we’ve released a new report on the market opportunities and challenges.

That leaves tricky issues around sponsored tweets, or targeting feeds on third-party Twitter clients or other platforms. Last fall, I wrote about how to get into the market early. It’s still relatively early in this immature but potentially lucrative segment of social media advertising.
