I knew that celebrities made money from many different ways
like appearances and signing autographs. But Thousands from
one little Tweet?

If you think their lifestyle is too decadent, look away now: celebrities
can earn thousands of dollars for just typing (or, more likely, getting
an assistant to type) 140 characters.

The Kim Kardashians, Snoop Doggs and Charlie Sheens of the world
have made themselves thousands of dollars by simply typing out a tweet
or two. They have all tweeted sponsored tweets, or ads, to their hundreds
of thousands of followers.

How about $50,000 from one tweet?

If you remember back to the March madness that was Charlie Sheen taking the Twitter-verse by the (tiger) tail, you might also remember that he tweeted what was likely the most expensive sponsored tweet to date: a call for a “Tiger Blood” intern, who would apply through Internship.com. This $50,000 tweet generated nearly 100,000 clicks to Internship.com in the first hour, and over 80,000 applications for the position.

Oh, If only I was a star.


Best of success,
