Despite all the hoopla about Twitter’s new self-serving platform, it seems that they are having serious trouble getting people to sign up for it. Even through it’s been a month, they still haven’t signed-up 10,000 members to Twitter, despite a free $100 credit. They released also the following statement:

Today, American Express will begin to notify eligible Cardmembers and merchants that they can now start advertising on Twitter. Initially, only a small group of businesses will have access to this new advertising opportunity — we will steadily increase the number of participating small businesses over the coming weeks.

Here’s their message, and link: American Express is offering $100 in free Twitter advertising to the first 10,000 eligible card-members and merchants who participate in this roll-out. Companies interested in participating can still register via http://ads.twitter.com/amex.
