What if you got paid to tweet?No, we’re not talking about handling a company’s social media. We’re talking big bucks, hundreds of thousands of dollars, just for typing a few characters, adding a link, and clicking “send.”That’s the business 23-year-old Kris Sanchez, who tweets under the account@UberFacts, a Twitter account that tweets — you guessed it — facts, to 7.2 million followers.Last year, he made $US500,000 for tweeting sponsored links, according to Fast Company.

"It’s pretty rare to make that much [money]," Jones says.The reason Sanchez is “on the upper end of the pay scale,” Jones says, is “partially because he has a big follower base, but more importantly, his audience is highly engaged. They stay for an average of more than 14 page views a visit. So if it's a gallery of 10 images, they're going to look at the 10 and then four (pages) of something else."...
