    Here's a easy way to make money off Twitter I just thought up.

    1. First lets find a blog which doesn't have a Twitter account yet.
    Use Technorati to find a blog. It's alright to use a blog that already has a Twitter. Just make the username look legit as possible.

    2. Create your account at Twitter and also make a Gmail with a similar username to your Twitter (so it's easy to remember)

    3. Time to customize your profile. So basically we are gonna make a avatar using the logo from your blog of choice. You could also use the mascot of the blog if they have one. Now change the design on your Twitter page to match your blog (Usually I don't use the default background images as they aren't very professional). Fill in your location, URL (use the blog url to make it look legit) and bio (make it simple and professional)

    4. Next, go to TwitterFeed and log in using your Gmail account you just created. Now we are going to go to the blog that you are using and we will get their feed url eg.
    Code:
    http://www.engadget.com/rss.xml
    http://blog.makezine.com/index.xml
    http://feeds.gawker.com/gizmodo/full
    
    Now verify your twitter account with Twitterfeed and add your feed url. Adjust your settings to your liking.

    5. Now time to find some followers. If your blog already has a Twitter account, get the username and head to FlashTweet. Click on Mass Follow and paste the username in. Now go follow as many people as you want. Also to get some followers using this method.

    6. Time to monetize. Sign up to TwtAd (Click here if you don't want to use my aff link) and link your Twitter account. I would wait to you have around 10 tweets before you start posting ads. If you don't want to use TwtAd, you can promote CPA offers using Tweet Later (Click here if you don't want to use my aff link)

    That's about it. Enjoy! :)

    Try shortening you url using bit.ly or ***** (tinyurl apperently doesn't work)

    do twtad pay out your money?
    coz there is another topic about twtad, and most of the comments say twtad don't pay...and one of them say there are some user's complaining about their twitter account was stolen by twtad

    i have a problem just shown up with twitter, cannot upload picture. i don't know why, twitter says my pic is too big, but it isn't. Anyone with this problem? Or any solution?
    I have only one account at the moment (with picture), and i'd like to setup a few more, but without picture twitter account doesn't worth too much...

    i've just found the answer for my own question on twitter support: :)
    "I GOT IT!!! When you add a new pic and you click "save" go to another tab and save something there as well. Then youre all done. Dont click save twice like it asks. I FINALLY got a picture up!!!" rubixcube
