Twitter might finally turn a profit.

In an attempt to finally turn a profit, Twitter, the online microblogging service, is set to start rolling with advertising on its website, according to The Wall Street Journal.

According to the report, the San Francisco-based company will start rolling out the ads to 2% to 10% of users starting today. The initial ten advertisers include Starbucks, Virgin America and Best Buy. Twitter intends to start by charging advertisers per thousand impressions of their ads. Eventually, it plans to move to a more complex model, charging based on how users interact with the messages.
