    Hi guys,

    Is there something like twitter account flipping? I have an account making me around 50 bucks a week via mylikes but i can't be bothered with it.

    I know about BHW BST section and i'm not asking for a sale right now. I'm just wondering if there's a site where you can 'flip' your twitter profile? And what sort of money could i ask for an account like this

    No, selling twitter accounts is against twitter TOS so the account would be deleted.

    However selling privately may work....

    Register a relevant domain for the account. Put the site on Flippa and offer the Twitter account as a "bonus". Just explain that the site generates income via Twitter and you will teach the new owner what to do.

    HTH.

    Oh wow that's a good one! I already have a domain with the twitter account so maybe i could set up something like an autoblog on there.

    Kicking the thread a bit.

    Made a site, every time i tweet about it it gets about 200 views.
    Never flipped a site before but i'm guessing i should have some proof for that?

    (There's no adsense earnings)

    Of course there is a market for this. Just find the right buyer. But flipping? Yeah i guess you could scale the account

    Twitter accounts get sold all the time. I bet 90% of the large accounts you've followed on twitter have been sold before. For example, meninisttweet (the largest one) was recently sold. Twitter has no way of knowing if you've sold an account really so it wont be deleted. I may be interested in your account if it is 90k+

    Thanks for ideas. I have struggled with the same problem of not being able to get any money from my twitter account. Now i understand how to do it. Is flipper the only site where i can sell my site+twitter or ebay can also useful?
