    The twitter users have been making more than the owners of twitter.

    Kim Kardashian makes $10,000 a tweet from advertisers.

    Oh really? That's bad news for those who want to make money tweeting others' messages.

    If people can make money off of something, why not?

    I do not understand this "you should not be making money" attitude. Everyone should be making money, and not just a select few.

    Wow! Haha if I were twitter I could create a platform for such tweet exchange but charge a 50% commission on each successful tweet and make other tweets illegal.

    This way I can get in on some of that $10000 tweet money! That's unbelievable! How many follower's does she have?

    Good news and bad news

    It's good that they're taking action, but it's so radical. It's all or nothing there with Twitter and we knew it would change one day. It's the way it is

    I don't care though, if I'd ever want to make money from Twitter I will find something, just not through the ways most of the spammers are doing. If I want to advertise my website, I can promote others' too Most advertisements didn't work for countries outside USA anyway so it will be cleaner now
