Charlie Sheen Tweets Worth Big Bucks

11 Mar

I find it both ironic and convenient that in my post yesterday Charlie Sheen: Insane or Brilliant? I mentioned how Charlie Sheen’s antics may be a strategic Marketing move on his part to increase his virality on a level that is unprecedented, whether intentionally or not.

Well it seems my hypothesis has proven to be correct, and maybe he isn’t as insane as he may appear.  Apparently now Sheen has been inducted by Ad.ly as one of the top celebrities whose tweets could be worth anywhere between US$1000-US$10,000 per tweet. Celebrities who have made the list are ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star Kim Kardashian and Pop superstar Mariah Carey.

In two days Sheen’s Twitter following has grown to 2 million and continues to grow with each insane act. Suffice to say his Vial Marketing seem to have pulled it off, and he is now being paid for his insanity, or brilliance, depending on how you look at it.

I don’t know if I can consider this one to be a great Marketing move, but what I will say is right now it seems his tweeting antics will be keeping him in the minds and media of a lot of people for a bit longer than we expected.

In case you’re interested here’s the article that goes into greater detail of the lucrative potential of his tweets Behind Charlie Sheen’s tweet lies a new world of social media advertising Thanks Mirna Bard for this.

    Thanks for the mention! It truly sickens me that companies would even pay that much per Tweet when some people can’t even find jobs. YIKES!

      Well companies are willing to pay for whatever is the most talked about thing or person at the moment, and at this moment it’s Charlie Sheen…good or bad they just see it as an opportunity for great PR.

      Thanks for commenting Mirna.
