Atlantic Media is taking publishers’ latest stab at making social media good for something besides gaining traffic.

The company — whose properties include The Atlantic, Quartz and National Journal — plans next month to begin showing ads promoting certain advertisers atop Twitter feeds displayed in apps such as HootSuite, Echofon and TweetCaster.
