Oprah Just Made $12m Out Of One Tweet


Washington: Oprah Winfrey has amassed billions through smarts and hard work over many years. And while she has enough cash to buy anything she wants, that doesn’t mean she’s not open to making a little extra pocket money on the side.

According to Market Watch, ‘Journey to Beloved’ writer racked in a whopping 12 million dollar for merely writing about how the 61-year-old media proprietor was able to lose weight and still eat bread, reports E! Online.

Winfrey’s post, included a 30-second video clip, which was to promote her journey with Weight Watchers, and captioned it, “Eat bread. Lose weight. Whaaatttt? #ComeJoinMe.”

An hour after her story was sent into the Twitterverse, Weight Watchers’ shares climbed slightly over two dollar a share and since Winfrey owns roughly six million shares, the surge in share prices made the celeb 12 million dollar just like that.
