A Saturday Rant- Celebs Paid to Tweet

Originally posted: August 29, 2009 on TrishMcFarlane.com

So, I just heard another story about how companies are spamming Twitter users.  Celebrities, and I use that word VERY loosely, are now being paid per tweet to recommend certain brands to all their followers.  Some get up to $20,000 per tweet.  People like Holly Madison (Hef’s ex-girlfriend) and Kim Kardashian are now tweeting to their followers about certain products in hopes that will increase sales.

This is the very reason I don’t like to follow a bunch of celebrities on Twitter.  I guess it was only a matter of time.  I would probably pay to use Twitter if I could be guaranteed there would be no spam.  What do you think?
