New York - Twitter said its service to help sell native advertisements on mobile applications will be available to all publishers starting tomorrow.

Twitter began testing native ads with a small set of publishers in December, the San Francisco-based microblogging company said today in a blog post.

The ads are dubbed native because they would blend into the content around them, making them seem like a part of the app.

Twitter is broadening advertising across the mobile Internet after acquiring MoPub Inc., a mobile ads exchange, in October for about $350 million in stock.

With the MoPub product, marketers put in text and graphics and ad publishers can display them in a format that looks like it belongs in the app.

“We’ve learned that not only are native ads a significant improvement for publisher monetisation in general, but that users engage with these ad formats at a higher rate,” MoPub founder Jim Payne wrote in the blog post.

“Because of this, monetisation through native ads can deliver a considerably better experience for users and also a better ROI for marketers.” - Bloomberg News
