Media mogul, Oprah Winfrey just made some serious cash from just one tweet. And, I’m talking $12 million.
According to Market Watch, Winfrey racked in a whopping $12 million for merely writing about how she was able to lose weight and still eat bread.
Her tweet, posted yesterday, included a 30-second video clip, was to promote her journey with Weight Watchers..
An hour after she sent her story into the Twitterverse, Weight Watchers shares climbed slightly over $2 a share, and since Winfrey owns roughly 6 million shares, the surge in share prices made her $12 million just like that.
“I lost 26 pounds, and I have eaten bread every single day,” she said in her testimonial clip.
