’s application programming interface (API) has been updated in order to provide developers access to two new domains that are related to and . But unless these Promoted Contents appear on such as and , this indicates that data points are not yet ready for primetime.

Twitter Developer Advocate Matt Harris revealed some details in the prep on the Twitter Development Google Group: “Over the next few months, we will begin beta testing with a handful of desktop applications.

Apparently, the company and the developers of third-party apps will share in the split revenues that will come from the Promoted Contents.

The soda bottling company reportedly gained 86 million impressions out of the ad platform.
