    Affiliate Marketing on Twitter?
    Is it possible to use twitter only for affiliate marketing, and if so, how would I go about doing that?

    Check Twitter terms as they may prohibit adding affiliate links like Facebook does. Otherwise you will probably need to use a short URL as affiliate links can be long. Most affiliates send the traffic to their landing page so they can monitor it.

    Twitter Rules:

    "Spam: You may not use the Twitter service for the purpose of spamming anyone. What constitutes “spamming” will evolve as we respond to new tricks and tactics by spammers. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be spamming are:
    If you post misleading links (e.g. affiliate links, links to malware/click jacking pages, etc."

    And plenty of merchants do not allow direct linking - this would really no different than doing direct ppc ads.

    Shorten the link and you'll be fine. Everything I see on twitter is spam.

    Twitter may be a good touchpoint to meet potential prospects. But you have to take them back to your hub website before you can move them through your Sales Cycle. Of course you still have to create trust and credibility first before they will follow you back.
