You do have to wonder who sat down one day and thought

Hmm, I want to shift adverts, how can I write an application that will do it?

I hear the argument about 'the users expect adverts' and 'the users won't pay for this product' but have any of them actually tried just asking for a tenner a year for an advert free slurp free product? I'm not just looking at Twitter - really, any of the social media crowd are basically doing nothing more than offering clickbait for eyeballs... do they have so little faith in their own products that they think them unworthy of purchase?
