    @pxeger Let’s see.

    • Billions of people use Twitter.
    • Those billions of people each have their own interests
    • Those interests are easy to coax out of user data with analytics.
    • Those interests are valuable to advertising companies.
    • Automated analysis of user data makes Twitter a lucrative business model, even without ads
    • Twitter adds “relevant” ads anyway to further increase margins, saying “it’s what keeps our service free” and “you are in control.”
    • Mhm.
