Twitter Run First TV CommercialLast Updated: June 11, 2012
Twitter ran its first-ever TV spot this weekend, during the broadcast of the 2012 Pocono 400 NASCAR race. The short clip shows NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski in his car taking a photo on his smartphone, and [presumably] tweeting it. It is not revealed what he is taking a photo of, but rather the viewer is prompted to find out for themselves by visiting Twitter.com/#Nascar. Keselowski became a Twitter sensation earlier this year when he tweeted photos of explosions and fire on a NASCAR track, earning himself 100,000 new followers in 2 hours.
