I agree I don't like them either. I thought Twitter was going to settle on having people with >XX,000 followers pay something, Freemium style. But I guess ads are a better moneymaker and they will convert better in the feed.

That seems weird, like punishing people for their success, or letting others decide how much they should pay. (Unless, I suppose, that once you hit XX,000 followers nobody could follow you until you paid up.)
