    Dziekuje! Well twitter is pretty much a hit or miss situation. Basically you need a lot of followers and you need a lot of original tweets. In a nut shell you need an audience. The best way to go about this from my experience is the following.

    1.Make a twitter (go figure lolz)
    2.Get a lot of followers a good amount to go for before starting to make money is around 10k.
    3.Signup.twtmob & my favorite one so far but really takes time and patience before you start getting noticed is sponsoredtweets. Both are good from what I'v heard but you need an audience as this will bring up your clicks when you post the ads ect and will bring people back to advertising with you.

    Sponsoredtweets Referral if you so do wish

    4.Make sure you have around 100 plus tweets i think around 200 plus of original content is the best for this. You need to establish a presence.
    5.Post the ad and sit back for the clicks to build up. Also some CPA offers and other "enter email then verify offers" tend to work well with this. I'v only tried CPA once with twitter and it worked for a few users. Simple processes for users is the best selling point for anything as to why i'd go with the CPA "enter email then confirm email" offers are the best to start with.
    6.Profit

    Days

    Day 1 Earnings from the Adult websites going from 1 cent a day jumping to a whopping 46 cents and sarcasm drum roll.
    With a total of 966+ visitors.

    Adult TOTAL OF $0.46
    Climbing that mountain slowly but its getting there.

    Twitter earnings
    $2.90

    Overall total
    $3.36

    Tips so far
    Keyword research is paying off note to self a great way to attract visitors is to look at all your empty search results made on your site using google analytics. Then make adjustments to insure you have that content next time even if the word is spelt wrong return something at least.

    Day 2

    LMFAO. Yea I'm looking at life right now as all or nothing. So trying out everything I possibly can. I'm more than willing to work for my money so its P much go hard or go home. I took out a few things to try and keep things short and stay on track of the current project.

    Go hard or go home. Exactly. Rivaling FB, not so much. Concentrate on ranking for your keywords.

    Goal for now in 30 days reach 10$ a day. With legit traffic of course to insure it stays consistent.

    Umm... I don't know you, and you don't know me, but please go back to school man. You "18" and a few more [or one more] years won't hurt you. You have freaken 82 more years to go before you're really on the verge of death... (52 if you at least think you'll make it to age 70). Somewhere before 30 years though, you'll see what I mean after risking those few years to pass high school.

    I'm 19, and I knew a ton of people who dropped out of high school due to low tolerance... Same goes for a ton of people who got abused too (and trust me: it was WAY more than those with poor tolerance)...

    I'm telling you what's true man... It's worth it to finish this moment in high school man. You know, the #1 reason why most people fall out of high school is because of purpose. If you don't have purpose, motivation doesn't exist (as it's prematurely the cause of purpose). Maybe you don't feel an energetic sensation for your current purpose, or maybe not. If you don't just take some time to think about why you considered school a neccessity. Try to find that sensation again, and start from there... It's worth it man.

    Please go back to school... And don't forget that you can do this as a job instead of putting all your effort into this.

    You know, the average part time job is 20 hours, which is 5 hours a day. Maybe you could do 10 hours on the weekend, 5 hours Monday through Friday, or just 3 hours a day (monday through sunday).

    I'm telling you man. It's worth it. I wouldn't write a post this long for no reason. I have a fair understanding of how it can be dude. I knew people who dropped out around your age.... I still do too (and I talk to them daily).

    I second Jarod B on that. And more so coming from someone of your age group.

    If you really want to savour the journey of life(a plot of highs and lows), you play by certain rules.

    Going to school is like learning to SPEAK and equally as important, the only difference is that you may choose to go to school or not, but by natural design of things you learn to speak even before you learn of the free will to do what you want, and secondly the learning curve is haplessly beaten cos there is less garbage 'upstairs' at that age.
    "But as 18 year olds, once you find something tasteless and difficult, you want out even without trying."

    College Education is a necessity if which you can allow run its course, isn't a waste in any definition. Dropping out of college is a glorified term amongst most tech guys, but keep in mind that all of them had their beginnings In College.

    Given...... you can learn a lot more of life's lessons out of school than in school, but pulling out of school means you lose out of what the other experiences has to offer.

    Define your Priorities Aright, So you don't get lost without the GUIDING light of a Collegiate MAST.

    Do not blame anyone not even me for my comments. Take a second look at your Thread title. What do you expect when you make the "Dropout" part stand out.

    If you are really so well off i must wonder at your excitement over a $20/per day Earnings. Nothing Personal, the whole post just sounded typical of a text-book dropout.

    But reading your reply to jarods comments, well you have/had quite a lot going for you.

    Thanks appreciate the shift in perception of me. Im excited because it's a new field a way I can build something up to a point where I always have side income. There is always a plan B this is mine. If things go to "poop" this is my net plus the topic is very interesting and fits well into my skill set. As you can see my posts were edited as i took anything out that may lead people off track of the topic, i can see where your coming from in terms of perspective.

    Update*
    Ad Money has already doubled from just this morning as compared to yesterdays entire day of profit.

    Interesting to see this jump, will mark trends. Although small is exciting to see progress on day 1.

    As a side-note I modified a few PHP scripts I made in terms of performance to feed content faster. ATM the script has server side limits due to nginx. NGINX has a request/pending time limit on how long the request can be hold. Will have to drive over and fix issues. Although is important for security measures as a DDOS can be emulated, (if large number of requests are made), 20 fold if all the requests hang. This tends to have more stress on my server dictated by terminal top command. Could also be a cloudflare security issue either way sticking with cloudflare amazing service so far.
