Nairatweets.net, a newly launched site pays Nigerian on Twitter to tweet.
Here is how the site works:
Nigerian publishers launch ad campaigns on Nairatweets.net. Afterwards, Nigerians are encouraged to log on to the site, to check the worth of their tweets by the Naira Tweets team. (One’s tweet worth is determined by an algorithm that factors in one’s number of followers and number of updates. The twitterer’s level of influence is also put into consideration by the Naira Tweets team).After their worth is determined, they are allowed to select a maximum of 3 advertising campaigns on the site. The twitterers are then allowed to compose their own unique tweets for each of the campaigns based on their descriptions and the samples given. These tweets are automatically sent to the twitterer’s timeline by the Naira Tweets team. The twitterer is then paid a certain amount for every tweet sent to their timeline. The more one tweets, the more one gets paid!
How twitterers get paid:
Those who partake in the site’s advertising campaigns get paid once their account balance gets up to N2,000 via Bank Transfer. Payments that amount to less than N2,000 are paid for via redeeming vouchers and GSM recharge cards.
