I thought advertising was supposed to be targeted at men 18-25. Yet, I see a lot of advertising lately that seems targeted to the 35-55 range. Skeletor selling cars, Salt-N-Pepa selling insurance. It seems all the pop culture stuff that I would know seeks to manipulate me into buying stuff.
Also if this doesn't convince you that Twitter is merely a mechanism to push advertising at you, I don't know what will.

“The two examples you cite are probably targetted correctly. The 18-25 group probably isn't buying many new cars. I don't know what sort of insurance Salt-N-Pepa is selling, but that also sounds like something old people think about. ;)”
I saw that insurance commercial. It was freaky. I flipped the TV over to C-SPAN in response.
