77 Twitter Scam or Money Maker?

by Josh Lam
Update: I now recommend MyLikes. You can make 5 times as much per click with MyLikes, as compared to RevTwt. Read the Blog Post about MyLikes here

Once again, there’s another Twitter Advertising Network on the interwebs. Many people think their website looks too scammy to be true. Well, we’re going to find out.
Similar to Magpie, RevTwt advertising are placed as a tweet, which is displayed on your Twitter Profile. There are no disclaimers for the ads, so your followers may find it hard to distinguish between ads and real tweets. Unlike Magpie though, RevTwt pays per click, not per view (a.k.a. Pay-Per-Tweet). This allows the system to be more open to click fraud, like Google AdSense, although their system in place seems to be able to detect fraud pretty well, by looking at RevTwt’s Twitter profile.

Anyways, back to the experiment. In RevTwt, I entered my (test) Twitter account information and set it to automatically post an ad a day. This Twitter account has more than 22,000 followers. I was given the title of an “Elite Twitterer”, since I had over 8,000 followers (Which isn’t hard to do). Being an Elite Twitterer, I was given access to special adverts, wish paid more than the normal adverts. The highest is 20 cents a click, although the wherether the click is counted are based on a per country basis, which is different for each advert.

Simple math can show that if you tweet an advert worth 20 cents per click and get 10 clicks, you’ll get 2 dollars a day. That’s not much, but that amounts to $62 per month, or $744 a year! That $62 could cover your monthly phone bill easily, or it could even pay for a pretty nice meal.

Well here’s my verdict: RevTwt is NOT a Scam.

I’ve made a total of $71.69 from RevTwt so far, but I’m sure I could make even more if I tried even harder, e.g. placing more adverts.

I’m not asking you to buy anything. Nor am I asking you to pay me for this information. But I suggest that you check out RevTwt – it’s one of those money makers that need little no work at all, except you should tweet often (hopefully you already do), and requesting payment (don’t forget to check) once you hit the $20 payment threshold. Done.

    Sadly they don’t seem to want to answer emails. I have added THREE accounts and one of them has the wrong follower count (it is out by about 75%) and the other two have a follower count of 1000s but they are listed as having no followers. Number emails have gone unanswered.

    I rarely leave responses, however I browsed a few responses on this page Twitter Scam or
    Money Maker? – Josh Lam dot Com – A Young Internet
    Entrepreneur Making Money Online. I do have 2 questions for you if
    it’s allright. Is it only me or does it look as if like some of the comments look as if they are
    coming from brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional social sites,
    I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete urls of all your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    Very good blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any
    forums that cover the same topics discussed in this
    article? I’d really like to be a part of group
    where I can get suggestions from other experienced individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Thank you!

  6. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser
    compatibility but I figured I’d post to let
    you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon.

      How come when I try to sign-up fill-up all that is necessary and when I click submit nothings happen?
      What is going on? Is RevTwt even still active?

    You you could make changes to the page title Twitter Scam or Money Maker? – Josh Lam dot Com – A Young Internet Entrepreneur Making Money Online to something more generic for your content you create. I enjoyed the post still.

      Still pays out (as of Oct 2010). You need to reach a threshold of $20 before you can get paid. You have currently earned $1 🙂
