The social-media site said it is introducing advertisements that let companies pay to have their messages appear in searches on Twitter's site. The move comes as Twitter faces more market pressures about how to convert its following of about 70 million users into profits.

Virgin America, Sony Pictures and Starbucks are among those advertisers initially involved. They are participating in something called Promoted Tweets, ads that run on top of search results on Twitter, much as sponsors can pay for listings atop rankings on search engines such as Google, Microsoft's Bing and Yahoo. 

Twitter users are likely to see the ads when they search broadly for topics being tweeted about. The ads will look like tweets, with a disclaimer.

Do ads on Twitter turn you off to the site?

Personally that site is boring and annoying.

No. Twitter itself turns me off of the site. I've never understood how people could enjoy something so boring.

I made a profile with my cat's name once and never posted anything. I get email alerts that ppl are following me all the time. That's all I know about twitter.

I have an ad blocker, so they don't bother me at all.

I really don't care about ads on web pages, though, to be honest. I just installed the blocker, because I was sick of seeing some of the more risqué ones on here and fbook.

I think the banal content of the site is what turns me off

I was about to say this.

From what I've heard, it's just one big status update.
