One thing I can’t stand is when rich people get paid to tweet. Reports are now claiming that Charlie Sheen joined Twitter this week only so he could make money. Why? Because he doesn’t have a job anymore. So where did all his money go? He’s been on his hit television show for eight years, was the highest paid tv actor, and gets paid a fortune for the show being on syndication. So whenever the show airs every single day, many times a day, around the world, he gets paid. But here he joins Twitter first claiming it was his way of talking to the fans. But the reality is that he only joined so he could get paid to tweet.
But like many other celebrities, he doesn’t run his own Twitter. RadarOnline is reporting now that someone named Bob Maron is running Charlie’s Twitter page. Charlie calls him everyday to give him the messages he wants posted. And by looking at Charlie’s page, the very first person he’s following is Bob Maron. Bree Olson is second.
They’re saying Charlie would normally get paid $10,000 a tweet for whichever sponsor pays him. That’s the common rate that most celebrities get. The reason why I hate when celebrities do this is because they have so many ways of making money but here they’re using a social network to make even more money. They claim it’s to talk to fans but it’s a lie and just another way of milking the public.
