    Do Twitter profiles sell?

    I have come across TweetValue | How much is your Twitter profile worth? and there you get an account with 5k followers appraised for around $1,500.00

    My question is whether or not Twitter accounts
    1) sell
    2) sell for the prices quoted.

    Not sure but could be a novelty fad site just driving traffic, but not actually selling the accounts and bringing in the money

    A friend of mine has 40k followers. His account is appraised at $13k.
    I would say that his presence on Twitter is about worth 3-4k monthly.
    So I would say that in some niches the value is more than justified.

    It might be worth that money, but selling Twitter accounts is not allowed from Twitter if I'm correct

    I have yet to read a Twitter TOS. I know that they do not verify your email address, so they probably won´t catch ownership transfer of an account.

    How about having multiple accounts. Is that against their TOS?

    The 1 Million Dollar sale is a profile with 400 followers, a lot of the profiles on that list are suspended.
    Not sure that this website has a real track record of sales.

    Why sell twitter profiles with a lot of followers when you can actually monetize them and make double the cash?

    As it takes time to keep managing the Twitter account

    Because someone out there might be in the business your account has been targeting.
