Taking selling out to new extremes

Tweeting ads to your friends. (Or to your Twitter followers.)

Maybe this bad idea will die before it takes off, as people dump those who tweet ads.

I hope I'm not being too optimistic.

I pay attention when someone I trust mentions a product, but if a trusted person accepts money to make an endorsement, they immediately become a non-trusted person, like, by definition, at least regarding said endorsment.

I'm interested in this concept, though; because the perfect stupidity behind it is so symmetrical; almost crystalline in nature. I wonder if the sheer dumbness of this idea will collapse the universe. Time will tell!
