Fox News and the Wall Street Journal are reporting that Twitter will begin rolling out advertising today. The service, called Promoted Tweets will allow advertisers to put their paid tweets at the top of Twitter search results. Initial advertisers will include Best Buy, Virgin Atlantic, and Starbucks, among others.
