Does shilling on Twitter make you cash -- or simply a twit?


Last month, fellow WalletPop blogger Aaron Crowe interviewed the CEO of Izea on how he pays bloggers to tout the wares of advertisers. Now Izea plans to move its controversial marketing onto Twitter. It will soon unveil a new program called Sponsored Tweets, which will pay Twitter users to promote products.

So will this make tweeters rich? Hey, it could be a better use of your time than tweeting about what you had for breakfast or your relatively uninformed opinions about nuclear proliferation. You could actually write something of interest to more people besides yourself -- and make money at it.
