Did you know that you could get mega rich in just 140 characters? Yep that’s right just one single tweet!
Well that’s if you’re a well know celebrity or sports start. It has been revealed that NBA superstar Lebron James gets paid just under £100,000 per tweet in relation to any endorsement that he does. A couple of those a year would set you up nicely. Could you get paid anymore than that for a single tweet…well yes sir you can.
Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has 30 million twitter followers to his name and therefore a good audience for anything that he tweets about. Because of this large audience size it is said that he makes close to £160,000 per endorsed tweet and not to mention this is only his side income as he is paid a cool £14million a year to kick a leather sphere, aka a football, around on a square piece of grass (the pitch).
So what does this tell us? When you can make over £100,000 using 140 characters in less than a minute, then maybe we all need to figure our own way to do it.
