Oprah Just Made $12 Million For A Tweet About Bread

1 min


Just when you thought your current financial situation couldn’t make you feel any worse, Market Watch just reported that Oprah was paid over 12 million dollars to Tweet that she still lost weight while eating bread yesterday.

The Tweet was part of her current Weight Watchers campaign and Oprah just so happens to be the primary shareholder. An hour after Winfrey 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 the celeb $12 million, just like that.

I can’t wait to see what she Tweets when she decides to gain weight again, because whatever the “Big O” does, that meal plan has to be severely on point.
