I have tested the Magpie service and it does what it says and gives you back information on click-thrus from the people who have posted your ad.
I think it could do more to give an idea what is going on with your campaign while it is running.
The click-thru rate was pretty good but I haven't gone back to fund another campaign as I think I can get the same results myself.
It's worth a try if you're interested in twitter advertising but I'm pretty sure I won't be using it again.

I completely avoided this the minute it hit the scene. I would much rather Twitter have advertising on their page, or users be allowed to place ads on their home page... but within tweetstreams? No way.

Freaky concept. Unknown advertisers using my voice to sell their product at times of their choosing. No way would I sign up for this.
