Celebrities Get Paid to Tweet

kim-kardashianYes it’s true!

You may be following celebrities on Twitter and reading what they write, but Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie and Lauren Conrad are among the long list of celebrities that are paid to tweet for companies, which include Sony and Nestle.

According to, a company who connects tweeters – both famous and not – with ad partners, Kardashian and Soulja Boy both earn $10,000 whenever they tweet for cash via

Kardashian, who recently tweeted for Nestle, denied claims that she gets paid to tweet.

Over the weekend, the reality star wrote on her blog:

“Am I not allowed to talk about something I like without people assuming I must have been paid to do it? I want my fans to know what products, gadgets, foods, clothes and beauty products I like and I love sharing all that with my fans.”

Celebrities like Heroes star Greg Grunberg and Channing Tatum, however, donate their tweets to charity. Unlike Kardashian, they earn an estimated four figures per tweet.

Nicole Richie to Create and Star in Comedy for ABC


Nicole Richie is working on a television project for ABC, which she will not only produce, but will also star in.

The mother of two took to her Web site to report her big news.

I am so excited to announce that I am officially working on a television project! I am creating a half hour scripted comedy for ABC in which I will be starring in, as well as producing.

The story revolves around a young, modern and professional woman who must balance her business and family relationships. She must deal with, and navigate the many ideas of what a woman’s role is: modern vs. traditional.

Lately, I have been surrounded by many different women of all ages and walks of life. It amazes me to watch and observe how many different ideas there are about what a woman’s role should be in this era. I’ve taken these fascinating ideas, and compiled them into something that I think will be very special (and funny!). We’re still in the very early stages and I can’t wait to share more with you soon!

What do YOU think of her upcoming project? Will YOU watch?
