How Much Do Celebrities Get Paid to Tweet?
Fun fact: You could get paid as much as $10,000 for one tweet! But before you flood the Twitter stream with 50 blasts and wait for your $500K to roll in, we should clarify that you probably can’t make that kind of money in 140 characters or less. One can, if one is wicked famous, has hundreds of thousands of followers, and finds an advertiser to sponsor a tweet.
Plus, Selena Gomez could be earning way more than that. We don't know exactly how much the Revival singer commands, but a recent statistic says one post she shares across Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook is worth over a half million dollars.
