MySpace selling their Twitter background?

Back in the bad old days, when BRR used to visit MySpace (thank the wizard-in-the-sky that artists like Sufjan Stevens, No Age and Klaxons have started streaming their albums on places like NPR, The Guardian and even AbsolutePunk) it would often be the case that bands/brands would pay through the nose to do a home-page takeover, and you’d see Fall Out Boy’s (or similar) faces staring back at you whenever you visited.

In these hard-times, MySpace are now offering the same services to bands on their… wait for it… Twitter background. Interestingly, it doesn’t appear that selling your Twitter background is against the Twitter terms of service, although you could argue that the background is intended to increase traffic to MySpace, it’s highly likely that the band in question have paid for it.

Surely @hipsterunnoff should get American Apparel to advertise on his Twitter background.
