What do you get when you combine Google AdSense, a hot keyword (Twitter), and an incumbent mayoral candidate who has oodles of money? Domination of social media political placement in a campaign, you say? You're probably very right.
In the next few days, take notice of websites with a heavy Twitter presence that uses Google AdSense (my site, it appears, is one of these). You will frequently see an ad for a candidate, who's name I won't mention so that it doesn't give more fuel to the campaign...however, his name does rhyme with Doomberg. Here's a link to a blog that confirms this.
So...you like the new politics...social media style? Does it give an unfair advantage to those who can overbid on keywords, or does it level the playing field? Either case, I think it's here to stay. However, it may make me rethink if I really want AdSense on my site.
