    I want to pay people 25cents to quickly install and test a chrome extension. Are there any good services built for this? Mechanical turk?

    The rules are very basic. Go to 2fb.me -> click the Get the Youtube Extension link and then send one test tweet using it.

    I'm desperate to get more users to test this because the extension has 50+ installs but almost no activity in the way of shares and zero feedback. Even though Google Analytic's shows traffic flow activity and it works perfectly fine in my chrome browser so its kind of hard to debug a problem you don't see :/

    Anybody here want to give it a quick shot and just tell me if it works on any computer but my own?

    Thanks. (p.s Let me know your Twitter handle if your using it so I can reward you later and better debug the issue)
