What is Sponsored Tweets?
We have a web service call Sponsored tweets which is a reputed brand call Izea Innovation. The idea behind Sponsored tweets is simple, its a market place where advertisers can buy tweets from your Twitter account.

Yeah! sponsored tweet is 100% legit and they pay users on time. Many marketers including me have already tested them and is really effective. It may be difficult to be selected to show sponsored tweets but if you have more followers then you may get chance. In case if you don’t get selected by sponsors you’ll get nothing. So, you should have many targeted followers, who engage on your content.
Sponsored Tweets has minimum payout of $50. But many of the publishers could not reach the payout and say Sponsorerd Tweets as spam. That is their incapability not to reach the minimum payout. So, if you’re among those incapable publishers you cannot earn money on twitter.
