I’m sure that business and celebrity twitter accounts have a monetary value but it would take a lot to convince me that mine was worth anything. However, the nice people at www.twalue.com have done their best.
They base their calculations on:
*the number of followers you have
*the number of lists you subscribe to (but they are not worth as much as followers)
*the speed you gained followers also counts in your favour (I have no idea why)
But you lose points for the number of people you follow.
Right now my twitter account stands at 732 followers and I follow 858 people.
Twalue.com reckon that works out to be:
$293.96 (about £198 I think)
67 Big Macs
0.59 of an Ipad
Not that impressive, I think you’d agree but if you are on twitter come and follow me at @agoodconfession (I’ll follow you back) and let me know how many paperclips you’re worth.
