Twitter’s first commercial on TV ran yesterday, and their debut on the TV happened when the 2012 Pocono 400 NASCAR race was broadcasted. Omid Ashtari of Twitter was quick off the blocks, tweeting the Twitter community to see what is deemed to be the first commercial TV spot by the micro-blogging (some say social network) company. The entire clip lasted for all of 16 seconds, where it featured NASCAR racer Brad Keselowski who was firmly entrenched in his car, snapping a photo of the scene around him using his iPhone. I guess Keselowski would not be overly joyful with his tweets after that, coming in at 24th place. Just to recap, Omar’s tweet read, “in case you missed, here is @twitter’s first ever TV spot during today’s #NASCAR race…” You can view the video above to have a better idea on what the first TV spot for Twitter is all about, and there was nothing flashy at all just in case that was what you were looking for.
