Twitter has introduced Promoted Tweets in users’ timelines from organizations they are following. These sponsored ‘timely tweets’ will appear at or near the top of their timeline and will scroll through like other tweets once new ones are posted. Promoted Tweets can be removed from a user’s timeline with a single click.
